DAY 672 - VALLE DE LAS ANIMAS

P2255212.jpg
 

The valley La Paz is characterised by its sharp edged rock formations, which you see everywhere at the edges of the city and in between neighbourhoods. La Valle de las Animas (Valley of the Souls) is densely packed with rock formations that look like giant cathedrals. Thanks to my exploded tire incident and therefor return to La Paz, I had time to go for a hike.

There’s a few trails you can take from the river valley, but I choose my own route which lead to quite climb on sandy edges that gradually became steeper and near the summit almost vertical. Once at the top I stood on the sharpest summit I’ve ever been, from where you have an amazing view over the peaks and the city in the distance.
