Chacaltaya - Height 5, 395m

 

One hour drive from La Paz, we had to leave the car and climb the last 300 meters by foot. At this height, with the lack of oxygen, every step we made was an achievement.

At the end, we arrived at the top of the mount, and we saw then an incredible view of the Andes. When the weather is good (better than what we had), you can see the Titicaca lake.

 

We were at the hightest ski station of the world.
