A must when in Copacobana as it is on your doorstep and provides wonderful views inland and of the lake. If short on time I suggest booking a table at La Cupula for 7pm which is close to the trailhead. Start the walk at 5:30-6pm...More

A reasonably easy 20 minute up the staircase and past all the stations of the cross. The views on top are nice and gives you a good idea of the scope of the lake and you get a total view of Copacabana. It is worth...More

This is not a difficult hike unless you're still adjusting to the altitude. Worth the effort. Take your time and enjoy the journey. We hiked to the top in the mid morning but I imagine it's a great spot to watch the sunset as well....More

Climbing the hill could be tiring but in the top you can see all around Copacabana. It takes some time so must be planned. Recommended for young.

Cerro calvario reaches the 4000masl and it's a strenous hike up but you reach it in about 30 min. from the town centre. On the way up you pass by the 14 crosses which show the story of Jesus's way to getting crucified. Sadly some...More

After a 40 minute hike, you'll get the chance to have one of the best views of Copacabana and the lake. The hike may be tough if you suffer from altitude sickness, so be sure to take your time, take some water, and drink a...More

A 30 minute walk along some carved out steps and paths. Not really hard, but the high altitude takes your breath away. Once up: great views over Copacabana and Titicaca. Negative: rubbish everywhere. A real shame.
