THE EROSION OF THE EARTH HAS CREATED SPECTACULAR LANDSCAPES AROUND OUR PLANET, AND THE CANYON OF PALCA IS A TEST OF THE MAGNIFICENT WORK OF NATURE.  EXPLORE THIS VALLEY OF NATURAL TOWERING ROCK STRUCTURES AND WIND YOUR WAY DOWN TO A QUAINT TOWN WITH BEAUTIFUL FIELDS AND A GREAT VIEW OF ILLIMANI MOUNTAIN.

Itinerary

08:00 a.m. Pick up from the hotel/hostel in La Paz city to go southeast of the city arriving at the Valle de las Ánimas.  Here we have the sites that are indescribable among valleys, rivers, agriculture areas, and were declared as a protected area in 1995 and then natural sites of patrimony of La Paz city.

In this place, natural erosion has trough time created wonderful shapes.  The product of the successive transformations of the land shapes also are a panoramic site of the snow-topped mountains of Mururata and Illimani which are considered the guardians of the city.

Arriving at Uni Valley, we start the walk of approximately 2 hours into the Palca Canon. There we appreciate the geological formations from the erosion through the years, wind and rain that had given to this place its wonderful shape.  Into the canon you are going to find peace and of course be in contact with nature.

Besides that, we are going to enjoy the sites of the obelisks made of clay and sand that are at least 20 meters tall!

At the end of the walk, after visiting the valley and the town of Palca the transport will be waiting to take us back to the city center.
