The Devil's Tooth

The Devil's Tooth

Muela Del Diablo actually translates as "The Devil's Molar" but I like the Devil's Tooth better. This photograph was taken on one of our walks down from the Teleferico station to our hotel. La Paz sits at almost 12,000 feet above sea level and the rest of the Altiplano is much higher (I think we went up to nearly 16,000 above Laguna Colorada). Since we were coming from far away and from a place at sea level It was imperative that we acclimate properly (slowly) before beginning the road trip through the Altiplano. For this reason we took it pretty easy in La Paz and didn't explore the surrounding area that much, other than city walks and Teleferico rides. I would like to hike up to the Diablo one day though. I had planned to do it on our last day in La Paz, but the lockdown prevented and our early departure prevented that from happening. Hopefully, I'll get the opportunity to go back this very interesting city.
