Palca Canyon Day Tour from La Paz
From US$ 95 per person
On Palca Canyon Trip from La Paz you’ll enjoy its gorgeous and dramatic landscape ideal for soft hiking and nature exploration.
Take this day trip and explore two natural attractions in southern La Paz, only a few km away from the city. This tour will take you first to the Valley of the Souls and its unique rocky landscapes filled with magic. Later you will explore and talk through the Palca Canyon, stretching out below the foot of majestic Illimani, the guardian mountain of La Paz.
You will get picked up from your accommodation at around 8.00/8.30 am and get on our private transport.
As you make your way towards the south of La Paz the guide will briefly outline the programme of the day. You will leave the city behind and first reach the Valley of the Souls (Valle de las Animas).
This area is characterized by its curious rock formations as well as by its importance in the Andean mystical traditions that make it home to a number of rituals during the crucial times of the year.
Back in the transport, we will make our way through the La Paz countryside and farming villages eventually reaching the Palca Canyon, a real natural beauty.
This canyon is the result of thousands of years of erosion from water that shaped the landscape in a unique way. Its lost-in-time landscapes, together with numerous little canyons making their way on the sides, and a clear view of impressive Illimani, make Palca Canyon the ideal location for a relaxing hike and incredible pictures. As mid-afternoon approaches, we will return to the centre of La Paz, arriving at around 16.00.
