Chacaltaya ("cold road" in Aymara) is a mountain range in Bolivia with an elevation of 5,421 meters and a extensive view over the Cordillera Real and of Lake Titicaca.

The glacier - which was as old as 18,000 years – had in 1940 an area of 0.22 km², reduced to 0.01 km² in 2007 and was completely gone by 2009.The glacier was located about 30 kilometers (19 mi) from La Paz, near Huayna Potosí mountain.

The glacier on Chacaltaya served as a ski resort and was the world's highest lift-served ski area, the northernmost ski area in South America as well as the world's most equatorial. The rope tow, the very first in South America, was built in 1939 The road to the base of the 200-meter (660 ft) drop is reached by a narrow road, also built in the 1930s.

Chacaltaya is also hosting the Astrophysical Observatory (Observatorio de Física Cósmica), operated in collaboration with other universities worldwide. It is an important site for gamma ray research.

The  Zongo valley is located in the north of La Paz, leading to the village of Zongo, and starts at the bottom of Huayna Potosi mountain, where starts the popular route to the Summit.

Just like on the death road, the altidude difference will allow us to ride in different types on climates, from the arid and mineral sceneries at the top, to the luxuriant jungle in the deep valley.
