MUELA DEL DIABLO
Description: This rock formation in the south of the city is one of the most iconic sights in La Paz. Muela del diablo means ‘devil’s molar’ and its shape is what remains of an extinct volcano. It is an accessible hike from the city which can take from 2-3 hours to the full day..
How to get there: Take the minibus #922 or #207 to Los Pinos-Pedregal. Once in Pedregal you can walk or take a taxi to Chiaraque, the little town at the bottom of Muela Del Diablo. From there it’s a short hike uphill. It is possible to climb the Muela but this should be attempted with care and only under the right conditions.
