Chacaltaya is approx 2 hours out of La Paz and the mountain peaks at 5400m altitude. I booked a tour through HanaqPacha and was very happy with it. They pick you up from your hotel then drive you up to the 5300m point and you...More

Chacaltaya is beautiful and the most quiet place, it´s not only the mountain but all the things you see along the way like the Milluni Cemetery. The bad news is that you can get there only with a travel agency because you won´t find public...More

Nice place, you'll feel like you are on the top of the world and that you can touch the sky. Visiting this place is worth every single breath of this air... Amazing views on the way uphill.

I booked a day trip through Kanoo Tours to visit both Chacaltaya mountain (located approximately an hour outside of La Paz city centre) & Moon Valley for just $15 USD. Although I found the drive up Chacaltaya rather scary at times (the last 20 minutes...More

The altitude is insane, 17,800 feet to be exact. The snow covering the mountain is a sight to behold. My body had difficulties getting used to the high altitude, but the wanderlust in me just had to push myself, and the experience was definitely life...More

This trip is totally worth it if you 1) are okay with the chance of it being freezing and fogged-in (no views), 2) don't mind a 1.5 hour bumpy ride on a dirt road, 3) won't feel like crap at 5300m (over 17,000 ft.). It...More

Just outside LaPaz is one of the most accessible 5,000 meter mountains. A rough rock road takes you fairly close to the summit and then it is a short oxygen deprived hike to the top. Tour companies run groups up, or you can negotiate with...More

Did a half day at chacaltaya with a tour company. Once you're at base camp the climb begins. One of the most difficult things I've ever done. Not being very used to the altitude felt like the climb nearly killed me. Unbelievable view once you...More

I'm not too sure what we were expecting of our 'tour' of Chacaltaya but it was definitely more than 'get off the bus and be back in an hour and a half'. The views from the mountain are beautiful if you can move past the...More

I've been in Chacaltaya Mountain on may. There's a great experience for anyone that wants climb a mountain with friends or alone. The 3 tops are relatively easy to climb. The weather needs to be good for it. Too cold and wind over 90km/h can...More
