Incredible experience. Be prepared to walk--we walked 5.6 miles and climbed an equivalent of 26 flights of stairs. Well worth it once you get to the top. The view cannot be captured by photos but I tried! Photographers will be in heaven in this place...More

Mementos of one's holiday are on the whole cheaper in Bolivia than here. However there is a fine selection of items on sale for a reasonable price if one is prepared to barter. From the El Mapi it's just a short walk over the bridge...More

If this is a one stop place on your trip this market has some good souvenirs. However, compared to Lima or Cusco prices are high. Typical market fare- beanies, bags, scarves, socks, alpaca jumpers. A good spot to keep dry on a rainy day! Remember...More

All markets have good and "otherwise" vendors with some products made nearby (really) and some import them to look like they were from a nearby supplier...be wary travelers...
