La Cumbre Apacheta

La Cumbre Apacheta

La Cumbre Apacheta is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.871m (15,980ft) above the sea level, located in the La Paz Department, in Bolivia. It's one of the highest mountain roads of the country.

The pass is located within the the Cordillera Real in the Andes. The road to the summit is gravel. It’s pretty steep. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. The climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. Most people feel altitude sickness at around 2,500-2,800 meters. Near the pass, oxygen is in short supply. La Cumbre is the starting point for most group trips down the Yungas Road.
