The view is spectacular, especially when there is more snow on top of this majestic mountain. Its legend is interesting...but is it for real??

In January, the rainy season, you rarely see Illimani until the end of the day, when the fog and clouds lift, but when you do, it is always thrilling and spectacular! If only the hideous blight of the obstructing TIGO sign that blocks the view of Illimani from the southeast heights could be taken away! TIGO should be ashamed of... More

On a clear day, the mountain rises like a sentinel over the city and it is just fantastic. The surrounding mountains frame the Illimani with a very colourfull array of reds, green and brown.

Volcanoes are not rare in Bolivia, but this one stands out due to it's proximity to la Paz city. Many horizon views from the city allow for sightings in the very thin and clear air. You'll also see it from Valley of the Spirits and from Valley of the Moon.

The Illimani is an Icon in La Paz. It has a majestic look from all over the city, but the higher you are, the better you can appreciate it. Go on the New Teleferico ride to El Alto for Amazing look of the Illimani and the La Paz City.
