Searching companion for trip to Chalalán Lodge / Bolivia

by hotspot06 Online Now Sep 1, 2006 at 3:30 PM

Hi there!

My name is Daniel. I am living in Arequipa, in southern Peru, since almost half a year. I am planning to travel to Bolivia for the end of september (starting around the 20th). I really want to visit the Parque Nacional Madidi, which seems to be a really unique place for people loving untouched nature and a huge variety of animals.

Now i have the following problem. The Lodge i want to stay in, called "Chalalán", has a price policy which is "a problem" for indipendent (solo) travellers. If i would book now, alone, they would have to raise the price by 50%. This in quite a lot. So i thought to search for another solo-traveller who had the same idea. Of course it would be possible to travel to other parts of Bolivia together. I plan to travel Bolivia for 3-4 weeks (including Chalalán).

What i want to do/see:

- Bike down the road from LaPaz to Coroico
- Parque Nacionál Madidi (Chalalán Lodge)
- Silvermines in Potosí
- Sucre
- Oruro
- Trip to Salar de Uyuni

So solo-backpackers! If some of you would like to see the unique Parque Madidi and save some money, please contact me right away!

For any question contact me at

Hasta pronto and take care,
