What to Expect
Meet a guide a central location in La Paz and then rise above the city as you take the red line cable car to El Alto, a high-altitude district with sweeping views. You’ll pass the massive central cemetery on your way to the El Alto Witches Market—renowned for unique wares and the occasional ritual—and hop a minibus through a few El Alto neighborhoods. Ride the yellow line cable car to the edge of the southern part of the city and then transfer to the green line, which extends all the way into the upscale South Zone, which features the most modern architecture in the city.
