The Purapurani is a high-altitude river located in the Purapurani Valley.

My suggestion:
Suffer from altitude sickness? A mate de coca can help ease the symptoms.
My review

Are you a heart-and-soul fan of walking and climbing in the Andes or a dedicated hiking addict? Then why not consider an adventurous trip to Bolivia for the chance to go trekking in the Cordillera Real? Famous for its difficulty, the trek along the route of this Bolivian mountain range presents a genuine sporting challenge during which you will need to draw on all your reserves of both physical fitness and mental strength.

Tempted by the prospect? Not put off by the thought of the altitude, the strenuous climbs and descents, and the cold? Then it's time to get in touch with a trekking agency. A word of warning though: keep in mind that if you pay low prices, you may be compromising on both the quality of the experience and the safety aspect. Do plenty of research before deciding which agency to use.

If you want to explore the whole Cordillera Real range, allow a minimum of at least 20 days. Windswept steppes, snow-capped summits and glacial lakes: that's just a small taste of what you can expect from the landscapes and scenery here. The Rio Purapurani is to be found in the valley of the same name, which lies not far from Laguna Chiscacalliuni and the Rio Chacha Kumani.
