Description: La Paz, one of the two capitals of Bolivia, nicknamed the city that touches the clouds, is one of the highest cities on earth and the center of Bolivian legislative government, culture and tourism.

La Paz, the city, that touches the sky, is an apt description. Located high above sea level, La Paz sits in a bowl surrounded by the high altiplano. La Paz as it grows climbs the hills resulting in varying elevations from 3000 to 4100 m. Overlooking the city is towering triple-peaked Illimani, always snow covered and majestic.

La Paz is the legislative capital of Bolivia, the largest city. The legal capital, home of the Supreme Court, is in Sucre.

Not as often visited as other countries, Bolivia is the most Indian country in South America. and you'll experience the language, primarily Quechua, the culture and customs first hand.

The airport is on the altiplano above the city, and planes come in fast, due to the thin air of the 4100 m elevation. Check flights from your area. You can also browse for hotels and car rentals.
  • By bus to the main bus terminal on Plaza Antofagasta at Avenida Uruguay
