This is a very steep climb to the top, but well worth it. I thought that it was a beautiful tribute to Christ's walk, and it provided lots of personal reflection. We made it to the top in time to see the sunset, which was...More

Read about this viewpoint, which is a must visit when being in Copacabana. Steep way up, with typical hard street/stairs to walk, but thats the requirement to deserve an outstanding view over Lake Titicaca & Copacabana. Go late afternoon to view the sunset & enjoy...More

We left late in the afternoon from the beach at the lake, had to walk up the hill through town and hoped to reach the top before sun set. But, we ended up watching it set along the way up. Once it goes down, the...More

definitely worth the effort to climb above Copacabana and enjoy the view from the top of Cerro Calvario. You should allow at least an hour to reach the top from the center of town depending on how you have adjusted to the altitude.

This is an incredible walk full of steep climbs, great views and historical and spiritual significance. For many this can be a spiritual place with the 14 stations of the cross. There are curanderos doing spiritual and medicinal work at a major viewpoint - about...More

Titicaca lake lying at 3812 m the climb from the central square of Copacabana is less than 200 m. I see different altitudes for Cerro Calvario, centered around 4007 m. I climbed it and came back in an hour as I had to hurry to...More

Must see in Copacabana! It takes you around 20-30 minutes from the main street but it‘s worth it. You get a view over whole Copacabana City and the beautiful Lake Tititaca!

A nice little hike from the beach at Copa, ‘Cerro Calvario’ is worth the trek for sunset or anytime. Beautiful panoramas, a short (40 min.) burn from the centre, and fresh air. Don’t mind the countless dogs (friendly), tossed dirty diapers & other trash -...More

I climbed up the rock face from the entrance off Jauregui. It is a really steep climb and was basically rock climbing at different points. I recommend ascending this way and then heading down the main stairway off the other side. The more sensible approach...More

The hike up was tough given the altitude and the steepness of the climb, but we were rewarded with a bird's eye view over Copacabana, the sea and the surrounding islands. You can spot Isla Del Sol as well. Come early before sunset to get...More
