Admire the view from 5,300 m (17388 ft), and look over the ruins of Chacaltaya Ski Resort. Established in 1939, the ski resort was once a famous sporting venue, and to ski here was a feather in the cap of many snow sports enthusiasts. Formerly the highest ski resort in the world, with the world's highest piste and highest restaurant, the site gradually fell into disrepair. Global warming reduced the skiable area at the site each year, until now all that remains is the hut and the view, as well as a little snow on the slopes. Be mindful of the altitude when planning your visit. Add Chacaltaya Ski Resort and other attractions to your La Paz trip itinerary using our La Paz trip planning app.

Beautiful views. The summit is just over 5300m. You will feel like you are on the top of the world. The mountain is reached via a 1 hour drive along a very narrow, bumpy, single-lane road, stopping close to the top. It’s then a short 15 minute walk to the summit.
