Bus from Arica to La Paz via Tambo Quemado

Has anybody done the trip recently?

What time does the bus leave from Arica and which bus depot does it arrive to in La Paz? How long does it take?

How do you get to the hotel without being robed in La Paz?

Is there a Pullman Bus?

There are Pullman buses, Chilebus, it takes 8 hours and costs about Ch$8000. La Paz is probably the safest capital city in Latin America.

I don't know how up to date the prices are on these. Chilebus website is hopeless. There appears to be one bus a day. Try asking in the Bolivia forum too.
