ALPACA Experiment

Experimental Site

We are going to construct the ALPACA observatory on a plateau named Chacaltaya Plateau located 4,740 m above sea level, halfway up Mt. Chacaltaya on the outskirts of La Paz, Bolivia. This plateau is a flat and horizontal land covering the area of more than 500 m x 500 m. We already have basic Infrastructure (roads, electricity, etc.) accessible nearby.
