La Rinconada - Highest inhabited city in the world

La Rinconada - Highest inhabited city in the world

Located at 5,000 m /16,400 ft  above sea level, La Rinconada is a mining town with about 30,000 inhabitants. Its origin is due to highland farmers who settled there in the hope of getting rich with gold digging. Located in the Peruvian Alps, offers a rugged landscape with steep slopes and accesses only suitable for experienced mountaineers. It's a harsh, glacial environment and does not invite visitors since it doesn't even have hotels. Getting there is not easy either. The road from Lake Titicaca changes in a very complicated thing. A MOSTPOINT with credit for sure.

Notes
A mostly paved but anyway complicated road connects the city with the town of Juliaca, where you can visit the curious Tupac Amaru market. Lake Titicaca is also a MOSTPOINT!
