The country lies astride the widest section of the great Andean mountain chain. One of the most challenging trekking routes in Bolivia is the almost complete traverse of the Cordillera Real, the Royal Mountain range, which stretches 100 miles from Lake Titicaca to the capital, La Paz. Indian people and their pack animals have used these mountain paths for countless years. The western trekker is relatively new to the area. This documentary is about a trekking adventure that starts in La Paz, journeys along by road to Copacabana, by Lake Titicaca and explores some of the islands in the lake before returning to the mainland to the town of Sorata for the start of the trek back to La Paz.
