Photographer's Note

La Paz is at the highest elevation of the world's capital cities. As it grows, the city of La Paz climbs the hills, resulting in varying elevations from 3,000 meters to 4,100 meters above sea level. Overlooking the city is towering triple-peaked Mt. Illimani (6,438m.a.s.l.) snow-covered and can be seen from several spots of the city. The adjacent city of El Alto, at 4,200 meters above sea level, is one of the fastest-growing in the hemisphere.
