Aymaran Woman, Mt Huayna, El Alto.jpg

Snowcapped Mt Huayna Potosi rises above an indigenous Aymaran woman dressed in traditional clothing on the streets of El Alto, one of the highest major cities in the world, up to 13,615 feet above sea level. The growing city sits just above La Paz on the Altiplano highlands where most of the population consists of indigenous Aymarans who have migrated from the countryside.
