Visitor Reviews of Chacaltaya

Hillary Key from United Kingdom writes:

I lived in La Paz from 1972 to 1974 and was a member of El Club Andino. I skied up there a number of times and the experience was awsome. Yes, the belt, rope and hook for scooping the cable out of the snow was something else. Always came back down to the embassy with a monumental headache. The bus trip was incredible with wooden chairs stuck in extra down the aisle. Chickens and llamas also passengers. Never to be forgotten.
