9-Day Backpack Itinerary: Meet at Rim


We've hiked this route for the last few years, and it's such a great route; and Urique is such a fun town, that we thought we'd offer it to anybody who would rather walk than run. As with our other trips, it starts at the CHEPE train stop in Divisadero. This itinerary is not a loop however, and finishes by leaving on public buses from Urique for the CHEPE stop at Bahuichivo and onward to Divisadero. Compare to 9-day Rio Urique with burros, or 10-day FLOATPACK. Pack light (45 pounds/20 kilos maximum) -all gear goes with us to Urique.
