Perched scenically on a hillside, this peaceful little burg has a friendly town square, a bustling market and tropical attitude. And with far fewer international visitors than tourist-center Coroico, it's way more tranquil.
Chulumani is a paradise if you're into birds and butterflies – there are clouds of the latter, and several endemic species of the former. At a tropically warm and often wet altitude, the town makes a great trekking base camp and a relaxing weekend retreat with great views. The only time its pervasive tranquility is interrupted is during the week following August 24, when Chulumani stages the riotous Fiesta de San Bartolomé.
