After a month, we left Samaipata bound for La Paz, a city we had heard very mixed reviews about.
After 24 hours travelling, we arrived in bustling, busy, polluted but very cool La Paz. We found a ridiculously good value double room (70 Bs night) in Hostel Austria and set out to explore the city and its surrounding area.
La Paz is the highest capital city in the world. At 3600m to 4000m above sea level, the city sprawls across spectacular cliff faces and mountain ranges. It’s steeped in history, political chaos, has a colourful culture and a wide gap between the rich and poor; this city is a real marmite place, you either love it or hate it. We think you should love it for all it offers both in the city, and the surrounding area!
