Built into a dramatic bowl-shaped valley, the unique geography of this crazy mountainous city is best enjoyed from the teleferico (cable car) as you soar through the sky.
The Milluni Graveyard
A community of brave miners tried to stand up to a brutal dictator in the 1960s which tragically resulted in the Massacre of Milluni. Today, they rest in peace under the shadow of the ominous Huayna Potosi.
Speaking of Huayna Potosi, the views from its peak over the Cordillera Real leave travelers breathless, not least for the 6,088 m (19,973 feet) thin high altitude air.
The Cordillera Real
Those without the inclination to scale a mammoth mountain should head to the more accessible Tuni Cordoriri instead, where an easy hike affords unbeatable views.
