On the Way down from El Alto Airport to LA PAZ
Driving on the highway from El Alto Airport (Alt: 4100m) to downtown LA PAZ (3200-4100m), we asked the taxi driver to stop in order to take some pictures of this absolutely fantastic city view. LA PAZ lies in a deep valley (or crater ?) surrounded by the impressive mountains of the Cordillera Real...
City of La Paz
In LA PAZ, we choose the Residencial Latino for our "base camp". It is ideally located at the border of the modern and "popular" part of the city near the Plaza Amorillo. The Residencial is on one climbing part of the "crater" and the view of the city is also quite fantastic from there at night and the morning when the sun is lighting the other side of the crater.
