As one of South America’s best-kept secrets, Bolivia boasts such a broad array of attractions that travellers intrepid enough to reach this remote land are treated to a wealth of history, culture, and mind-blowing landscapes. From the wild, dream-like spaces of the Altiplano to the chaotic capital city of La Paz (flanked by not one, but four snow-capped mountain ranges), the Bolivian terrain spans everything from grassy plains to steamy jungles and colonial cities frozen in time, to some of the most remote and inhospitable landscapes on earth.
Few sites can rival the splendour of the Salar de Uyuni salt flats, where cactus encrusted islands rise surreally out of a sea of salt, or the sparkling blue waters of Lake Titicaca, dotted with beautiful islands and indigenous settlements. For the cultural visitor, Sucre and the silver mining city of Potosi offer an unparalleled view of the decadence of the Spanish crown. The thriving market at Tarabuco and infamous witches market in La Paz are bursting with jumbled charm, and both give visitors an insight in to modern day Bolivia. A magical destination, Bolivia will leave you breathless – not least because of the altitude.
