So we went there with Titicaca Bolivia. The bus ride was adventurous due to the bumby road conditions but the views from the top (you can reach by walking up 100) we're spetacular. So definitely worth it.
The drive up to Chacaltaya is both picturesque and for the brave. Your drive does an amazing job traversing the steep edges.

First of only do this tour if you are willing walk up a few hundred meters at high altitude. The mountain coverd in snow is beautiful, the walk up can be challenging with the altitude (but fun), and the views you get from there are...More
First I had to persuade the locals in La Paz that this place actually existed. They all denied this. But after days of probing, I found someone to drive me + partner up. Once we got to the top, for less than $10 I rented...More
