2. Go Hiking Without Adequate Gear
The elevation can be tricky, especially if you’re not used to traveling in high altitudes. The capital of La Paz rests at over 12,000-feet above sea level. Then there’s Pequeño Alpamayo at 17,618 feet and Huayna Potosi at 19,974 feet. To make sure your hike is as enjoyable as possible, be sure to head out with an experienced guide who can communicate in both English and Spanish. It’s also imperative that you wear suitable footwear and clothing. Keep in mind, many of the hikes, including Huyana Potosi, have frosty and icy conditions you’ll be forced to battle through.
