I cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed the Palca Canyon Tour from La Paz. My guide, who happened to be the owner of the company, was awesome! The pre-tour communication was great, and the owner even provided me with recommendations/suggestions on things to do in Bolivia after the tour!
I was the only person booked the day that I went on the tour. Since it was just the two of us, the hike was a bit strenuous at times, but nothing I couldn't handle. And with that being said, they are certainly able to gauge your fitness level and accommodate accordingly. The scenery in Palca Canyon is absolutely beautiful. And, for the most part, it's not as known or popular as some of the other hikes in the area - for example, Moon Valley. As such, it's so much easier to just enjoy the surroundings and nature.
This trip was certainly a surprise to us. Be prepared to Hike and scramble but the result is worth it. The scenary was lovely and you feel a long way away from the buzz of downtown La Paz. Our Guide was very good and took into consideration our capabilities but also drived you on to maximise your day in the mountains. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and saw things we would not have gotten too by ourselves
Well Experienced English Tour Guide . Well Trained to lead. I recommend him from my personal experience.
Highly recommend if you like hiking and are in good physical condition. We had a great time and enjoyed the day. I'm 68 and my wife is 65. We arrived in LaPaz that morning and went on the hike only a few hours later. The high altitude was not an immediate problem. Apparently there is a window of 5-8 hours after arrival.
A really great tour through one of La Paz's hidden treasures. Tour guide was an experienced hiker and had a great passion for the area. Forget Moon Valley, this place is the real deal.
A great tour through the canyon. I still don't understand why this is not advertised more as it is so much better than Valle De La Luna. Tour guide was great - knowledgeable about the area and a skilled hiker/climber. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who want's to see the real outdoors of Bolivia.
