Travel to Bolivia
Welcome to Bolivia, a must-see South American country, due to its diverse culture, extreme geography and fantastic history.
The poorest country in South America and landlocked in the high Andes, Bolivia is not for the faint of heart. Among its must-see sights number the “world’s most dangerous road,” and endless desert salt flats; even its capital – La Paz, the highest in the world – is hard to reach. But for the traveller willing to endure, Bolivia is a trip back in time.
With the most visible indigenous culture south of Guatemala, coca leaves and the indigenous population wearing bowler hats are common sights, while its geography is truly extreme: running from the Amazon jungle to the Andes and from the edge of the Inca empire at Lake Titicaca to the edge of the Atacama Desert, there is no easy way around.
An amazing cultural and natural diversity – Altiplano and Amazonas
Bolivia is one of the few spaces on earth not yet contaminated and the eighth most biodiverse country in the world. The country with the greatest ethnographic wealth, natural reserves of great value, unique species of flora and fauna, rivers, lakes, and salt flats.
