che trail solo, vallegrande hostelshello!
there doesn´t seem to be much information on the che trail other than in tourist shops trying to sell you tours.
is it possible to do this alone or would it be hard to find/know without a guide telling and describing everything to you?
this is something i would much prefer to do without a guide considering it is not dangerous and it is possible to learn about che without one.
also are there any good hostels in vallegrande anyone can recommend? on the cheaper side of course.

2if you don't want to take a tour you can take a bus from Santa Cruz to Vallegrande and from Vallegrande you can take a taxi to La Higuera, the road from Vallegrande to La Higuera isn't amongst the best in the world though (all unpaved), a 4WD would probably be your preferred way of transport from Vallegrande, especially during the rainy season

3When I was in Vallegrande 3 years ago I went to the Che museum there and spoke to the lady on the desk. She intruduced me to a local young man who took me to La Higuera in his car, introduced me to people who had known Che, then back to the airport site where Che was initially buried and on the hospital to see the iconic table in the laundry - it was a brilliant day and cost very little.
I remember having difficulties finding a hotel/hostel in Vallegrande - the first two were really dirty (and I'm not that fussy). Food was very basic and limited but the market was good, especially for breakfast. Despite all this Vallegrande is a really vibrant and interesting little town.
