Cordillera Real has more than 600 peaks over 16,400 feet, the majority of which are only a few hours’ drive from La Paz.

La Paz is the highest city in the world, sitting at 11,913 feet, that’s over two miles high and full of gorgeous overlooks.

Home to the world’s largest salt flat, it’s a gorgeous sight to see in sunshine, but with just a little rain it feels like you are driving across the surface of the sky.
