The ALPACA experiment is a new project aimed at wide field-of-view high-sensitivity observations of high-energy cosmic rays and cosmic gamma rays, launched between Bolivia and Japan in 2016. It is composed of an 83,000 m2 air shower array and a 5,400 m2 underground muon detector array, on a highland at the altitude of 4,740 m, halfway up Mount Chacaltaya on the outskirts of La Paz, Bolivia.
