Reasons to Visit

La Paz

The world's highest capital fills a giant canyon in the valley of the Andes with chaotic and crowded streets, at a dizzying 3,660 metres above sea level. The snow-capped Illimani mountain provides an awe-inspiring and ever present backdrop to one of the most mis-appropriately named cities in the world - don't expect a lot of peace in La Paz. What you can expect though are brilliantly frenetic streets filled with sights, sounds and smells that will stay with you long after you leave. Once you have got your breath back, explore the Plaza Murillo, cathedral and San Francisco church in the very heart of the city, as well as colourful Jaén street and the weird and wonderful Witches Market. No visit would be complete without a trip on the world's longest and highest urban cable car, whilst just outside the city centre, the other-worldly Moon Valley makes for a convenient and surreal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
