Andean Mountain Range
The Andes mountain range runs from Colombia to Chile and passes through the western area of Bolivia. The two hundred- kilometer long Royal Range is Bolivia’s most prominent range and also the most imposing of the Andes. It provides a constant backdrop across the High Plateau, especially in Lake Titicaca and La Paz, and it offers the best mountain climbing in the world outside the Himalayas, as well as numerous opportunities for trekking and mountain biking.
The Western Range is the home of the Sajama National Park with the world’s highest forest. The extraordinary biodiversity along with thermal springs, historic colonial churches and isolated villages giving visitors an impressive scenery.
Both the Royal Range and the Western Range (Sajama National Park) are amazingly close to La Paz, and a one-day trip is all it takes to provide a spectacular view of the mountains, lagoons and small isolated villages.
