La Paz Bolivia – An Experience We’ll Never Forget!
Join us for our wild adventure through Bolivia and our time in La Paz.
La Paz is known as “Nuestra Señora de La Paz” (Our Lady of Peace) and it is one of the two capital cities in the country, the other one is Sucre.
Chaotic, crazy and full of contradictions, La Paz is the highest administrative capital in the world, resting on the Andes’ Altiplano plateau at more than 3,500m above sea level. Its airport, El Alto, is the highest international airport and the fifth highest commercial airport in the world.
La Paz’ steep cobblestone streets and high altitude left us gasping for oxygen not because of its beautiful sights but because of the city’s thin air. Headaches and feeling extremely dehydrated were just some of the side effects of our visit.
However, believe us when we say that we are not complaining and that we had a great time. We got to see one of La Paz's most famous attractions that was formerly known as the ‘World’s Most Dangerous Road’ or Death Road and we got to drink coca tea for help with the altitude.
