Awesome mountain near the city of La Paz Aug 08, 2010
The ILLIMANI is a mountain that is 6,462 meters above the sea, majestic guardian of the city of La Paz, imposing and majestic.

ILLIMANI Aymara language means "Golden Eagle"

It is located southwest of the city of La Paz and from where she looks stunning, unrivaled landscape contrasting with the urban of the city of La Paz, highlands, and with the purest sky of america.

The city of La Paz is the epicenter of the Andes and the valleys, and the Illimani is almost the border between the regions of the Altiplano and Yungas. Illimani is the highest mountain of the Cordillera Real and is currently losing some of its splendor: the snow.

They say the illimani have 8 km in length and four peaks exceed 6000 msnm, symbol of the city of La Paz, is part of the shield of the city.

Because of its beauty, I want show you part of my city and my ILLIMANI.


Sorry my English

El ILLIMANI es una montaña que tiene 6462 metros sobre el nivel del mar, majestuoso guardian de la ciudad de La Paz, imponente y majestuoso.

ILLIMANI significa en idioma Aymara: “Aguila Dorada”

Se encuentra al suroeste de la ciudad de La Paz y desde donde se mire se la ve imponente, un paisaje sin igual contrastando con el urbanismo de la ciudad de La Paz, el altiplano y haciendo tono con el cielo mas puro de america.

La ciudad de La Paz es el epicentro de lo andino y los valles, y el Illimani es casi la frontera entre las regiones del altiplano y los yungas. El Illimani es la montaña de mayor altura de la Cordillera Real y actualmente esta perdiendo parte de su esplendor: la nieve.

Dicen que el illimani tiene 8 km de longitud y 4 cumbres que sobrepasan los 6000 msnm, simbolo de la ciudad de La Paz, es parte del escudo de la ciudad.

Por su belleza deseo que conozcan parte de mi ciudad y de mi ILLIMANI.
