Overview

Take a trip to the 5395-metre high Chacaltaya Mountain and enjoy a breath-taking view of the Andean mountain range and La Paz in Bolivia. The slopes of this formidable mountain are the world’s highest developed ski area and the world’s highest ski resort located right at its summit.

The journey from La Paz follows a steep ride while the last 200 meter leg of the trip flows a track that is generally covered by snow or ice. The summit offers one of the most stunning views of the Andean mountain range and Bolivia’s fabulous landscape. Get some great photographs of the city of La Paz, the three peaked Illimani Mountain and the 6088 meter high Mount Huayna Potosi.

Appreciate the dramatic beauty of Bolivia on this memorable nature tour.
