The peaceful surroundings of La Paz: Mallasa through photography.

25 Feb


A good way, indeed, to begin a peaceful week – the last one of February – sharing images from our surroundings, the municipality of Mallasa, a town 20-30 minutes from the city of La Paz, is a place of family entertainment with a pleasant climate, nature and tourist attractions.

One of the places most frequented by tourists is the VALLEY OF THE MOON, which are land formations that resemble the lunar soil, the Municipal Zoo “Vesty Pakos” animal’s own Andean area as the llama, alpaca, condor and others, the Parque Valle del Sol family recreational place but especially for children.

    Beautiful pictures. pic 7406 shows nice quiet little community with a dry river bed on the left of the picture. Well, in the rainy season that river comes alive with the water coming off of the mountains just behind the buildings. Be sure to visit that same view during the rainy season and you will see quite a different scene; water, mud, white caps as the water cuts its way under the bridge and on down the valley which is pic 7402. Many farms at the edge of the mountain are wiped out year after year only to be rebuilt again.
    Take Care.

    Really lovely photos. I’ve been to La Paz, but not to the surrounding countryside. Gorgeous!

      It’s a beautiful area… the mountains coupled with the flat-land vegetation just make it! 😮 Thanks for stopping by and checking the photos out!

      Probably, that’s the secret idea! 😮 To get people to come visit this beautiful place we’re calling home, for now! Thanks for taking the time to check it out, Ashley! Much appreciated! 😮

      And the best part is actually the pleasure of sharing the images… especially for a ‘sleepy Monday’, post-Academy Awards! 😮
