On our amazing Urban Trek Half Day, we take the cable car up to El Alto and “trek” our way down to the center of La Paz. You’ll take to the streets like a local during during the 4-hour descent through markets, neighborhoods, plazas and alleyways. The trek starts at 08:30 am when we hop on a minibus headed to the cable car station. After reaching El Alto (at a dizzying 4000m, one of the highest cities in the world!), we visit the Antonio Paredes Candia Art Museum to see works by some of Bolivia’s most famous painters and sculptors. Next, prepare to be dazzled by the views of the Andes and the sights of La Paz as you walk down through the “Hanging Neighborhoods” that surround the city. To top it off, we take a “micro” (a local bus, think old-school Bluebird school buses painted a rainbow of colors) to the heart of the markets area, where we’ll visit five different markets before finishing up our journey at the Witch’s Market.
