Mururata is a mountain in the Cordillera Real of Bolivia. Just hours South of La Paz, the Mururata lies to the East of the Illimani. The Mururata offers accessible climbing, as its shape does not contain difficult obstacles .
Local legend states that the shape of Mururata, a fairly flat-top as compared to neighboring Illimani, became that way due to an act of jealousy. Apparently Mururata was taller than the Illimani, so Illimani chopped off Mururata's head .
