Chacaltaya, the higest ski resort in the world

ADD TO MY TRIP

Some tour agencies organize a tour that's somewhat peculiar: a drive up to the highest ski resort in the world, Chacaltaya. If you are already acclimated to the altitude of La Paz, return to feeling the effects of altitude sickness when your off-road vehicle reaches 5,300m altitude near the shelter. They will provide you with a mate (tea) made of coca and then you can walk, if your strength is with you on the slope you'll keep gaining a couple of hundred meters in altitude.
