Posted by / in Blog, Featured Posts, frontpage, South America, Tavistock Travel Agents, Traveller's Tales /

It’s officially a record

The cable car system that crosses La Paz has been acknowledged as the world’s longest by Guinness World Records. The 30km long cable car system, clean and efficient, consists of 17 stations along five lines, and connects La Paz to El Alto metropolitan area. The electrically powered gondolas have built-in Wi-Fi and unmatched bird’s-eye views of fascinating La Paz below and the Andes Mountains all around. Now’s a great time to cross from Peru and Machu Picchu, across Lake Titicaca and explore La Paz, the highest capital in the world!

La Paz: probably not the world’s most beautiful city – but it has an amazing Voodoo Market!!

After a two year closure due to increased volcanic activity, Ecuadorian authorities have reopened the summit of the Cotopaxi volcano to walkers. Cotopaxi National Park is Ecuador’s most visited natural attraction and offers activities including horse riding, mountain biking and hiking; reaching the volcano’s summit is a major yomp, but great achievement.
