Key Highlights

  • Stroll along colorful streets and lively handicraft markets
  • La Paz is the highest capital city in the world

Overview

The Bolivian administrative capital La Paz is the world’s highest capital city at 3600 meters. Ensconced in a canyon beside the Altiplano (high plateau) with the triple-peaked Illmani mountain watching over it, La Paz offers a slice of history alongside its glass sheathed buildings.

Stroll down colorful streets, visit handicraft markets brimming with colored tissue, musical instruments and silver plates and marvel at the Cathedral in Plaza Murillo. A high dome, thick walls and enormous stained glass windows make it a sight to behold.

The Valley of the Moon has a fascinating profusion of eroded pinnacles and canyons, creating the image of a lunar landscape.

Immerse yourself in this enigmatic city on the flanks of the Andes.

Itinerary

  • (This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and convenience to do the tour at your own pace.)

    You will be picked up from your hotel in coach/private vehicle and taken on a guided city sightseeing tour of La Paz and the Valley of the Moon.

    On this tour you will visit:

    The natural doctors’ street also called Witches’ Market. Locals sell herbs and folk remedies.

    The handicraft market and Indian shops with their colorful tissues, musical instruments and silver plates.

    The Plaza Murillo where the Cathedral, the Government Palace and the National Congress buildings are located. The cathedral is all the more impressive as it is built on the side of a steep hillside.

    The famous colonial street Calle Jaen located in the old section of La Paz.

    The tour continues passing through the residential areas of Obrajes and Calacoto before arriving at the unique Valley of the Moon or Valle De La Luna. Owing its name to the distinctive lunar landscape, this valley is actually a bizarre, eroded mass of canyons and pinnacles. This desert-like area is home to several varieties of cacti.

    At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in La Paz.
