“Amazing, loved it”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

So worthwhile, only about 45 minutes max one way and such great views. Lovely in the early morning as we did and I suspect that sunset would be great too. Highlight of our visit to Copa.

“Worthwile just for the view”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

It's a short but steep walk on a stony trail, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. About half-way between the twin hill you have a beautiful view of the coastline, and from the top you'll have a bird's eye view over the town with its vast cathedral and the busy beach

“Beautiful view with litter and drinking”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

It is a must. I recommend to do it as one of the first things to give you a good perspective of Copacabana. Very disappointing to see so much litter around.

“Nice view, lots of litter”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

The view of the sunset and Lake Titicaca was indeed beautiful, but there was a lot of trash on the path to the top. It stank, literally!

“Great short hike with stunning views”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

A steep yet short hike from the main square and Cathedrals leads you up to a Shrine/Catholic site that includes stations of the cross and offerings. Once you have climbed all the way to the top you have incomparable views of Copacabana and Lake Titicaca.

I would advise if you go up around Sunset, the views are amazing but make sure you have a flashlight or headlamp as there are no lights anywhere on the mountain and you should be careful when walking down.
