After all, the feeling associated with visiting a city which is at a high altitude, and that too which is as important as a capital, is altogether unique.

La Paz, Bolivia


Located high up at an altitude of 11,942 ft, La Paz is the highest capital city in the world. Although it is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world, the biggest challenge that the capital of Bolivia faces is the extreme temperature differences. However, the destination itself is a treat for travellers, especially because the environment in this place is no less than a carnival. It is often the vibrant colours and varied moods of this city’s urban madness that impresses the travellers.

Quito, Ecuador


Situated at an altitude of 9,350 ft, the Republic of Ecuador is home to the second highest capital city in the world in the form of Quito. Besides, one more thing that makes this city special is the fact that it is a capital which is also closest to the equator. Although this town has been known to travellers as one in which it takes time to acclimatise, it is also a place that has plenty of tourist attractions in the form of its historical quarters, beautiful gardens, shops, cafes, restaurants and more.
