Situated at nearly 12,000 feet above sea level, La Paz is located in a valley at the foothills of the Andes mountain range. Begin your day with a visit to Moon Valley, a maze of canyons, giant spires and geological formations. It is said that Moon Valley was actually named by astronaut Neil Armstrong after he likened the area to the lunar landscape. Continue to the city center where you will see the main square, Plaza Murillo, surrounded by La Paz Cathedral, Presidential Palace and the Congress building. Then it's your choice! Visit the Gold Museum, with its impressive collection of pre-Columbian precious metals, some dating back 3,000 years. Or visit Casa Pedro Murillo, the former home of the martyr of Bolivian Independence, and see the immense collection of artifacts, colonial art, furniture, and musical instruments. This afternoon take in the magnificent views of La Paz while on an exhilarating cable car ride high above the city. Venture into the famous Witches Market and mingle with the locals buying supplies for ritual ceremonies and offerings to the Pachamama (Mother Earth). Gather with your fellow travelers this evening for a cocktail reception before enjoying some traditional Bolivian cuisine.
