Tour Description

The Chacaltaya snow-covered mountain, where snow sports were previously practiced, is 36 km from the city of La Paz. Nowadays it is a very important place to visit due to the access to its summit that only needs acclimatization and not technique. Chacaltaya also shelters incredible lagoons which dazzle all visitors.
