Tour description provided by Viator

Located to the southeast of La Paz and lost in eternity, rests Palca Canyon. Join this 7-hour small-group tour, starting at 9am with hotel pick-up in La Paz, and get ready to explore Palca Canyon and its unique environment with the company of a professional guide.
Eons of rain have sculpted the sedimentary rock into a masterpiece the likes of which Georgia O’Keefe or Salvador Dali would feel perfectly at home in. Temperatures here can be much higher than in La Paz, which is often a welcome change for those traveling in the Altiplano. Several smaller canyons spur off to the sides and offer a unique environment to hike in, as the narrow canyons wind and twist into the silence. The occasional presence of water creates lush oases of moss and deep green plants that starkly contrast the rock. We cook a hearty lunch in the canyon and spend the day exploring, hiking and enjoying this unique and surreal environment.
