Ascent Trip Report

Short hike from Copacabana - look for the signposts in the square near the cathedral. Passed the cool Inca astronomical observatory of Horca del Inca on the way up. Stunning view of Copacabana town, Cerro Calvario, Isla del Sol & Lake Titicaca from the summit.

I managed to not pay the Bs.10 entry fee as there was no-one at the office on my way up & I just ignored the guy on the way down. The Bolivian government need to clean the rubbish & graffiti if they are going to charge for walking up this hill.
