La Paz

4.1

City that Touches the Sky

Take a moment to catch your breath as you commence your holiday in La Paz. At 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level, Bolivia's capital stands out as the world's highest-altitude administrative center. The experience gets even more giddying as you traverse the busy metropolis on its most iconic form of public transport--the cable car system. At ground level, a tour of La Paz allows you to admire a blend of traditional architecture, administrative buildings, and trendy new hangouts. Pack warm clothes, as the high-altitude city experiences chilly evenings year round. Use our Bolivia holiday builder site to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to La Paz.
