  • This Funicular was inaugurated just over 3 years and connects much of the city of La Paz. Currently are 3 lines are under construction and two more transmission lines. New lifts, safe, and pleasant feel to walk on them. I took the cable car in El Alto and went down to the lowlands to La Paz. Great tip to walk in La Paz.

  • Flying over the city by cable car is a unique experience, both day and night. Just pay 3bl, (0, 5usd) x each way. There are 5lineas in operation and 6mas project. The most impressive is the Red that passes over the cemetery and climbs up to the Alto, from where you can see the city below and the immense plateau above surrounded by snow-capped peaks. The only problem is that you will notice that you lack the air for the 4100 meters of height.
