The world famous Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats will transport you to another dimension. With no distinction between land and sky, don’t get lost in the middle!
Camino de las Yungas
Better known as Death Road, this 50 mile stretch of road passes up and over mountains, chiseled out of cliff faces the whole way, with few to no safety rails. Dubbed ‘Death Road’ in 1995, its reputation as a mountain biking hotspot has spread worldwide for those brave enough to take the plunge.
The largest lake in South America and the highest navigable body of water in the world, Lake Titicaca is not only fascinating but beautiful as well. Situated on the border of Peru and Bolivia, both countries lay claim to parts of the lake.
Lake Titicaca is home to the Uros people who, for hundreds of years, have lived on the lake. Not by the lake, but on the lake, on islands made of reeds. This forgotten culture is unlike any in the rest of the world.
Jesuit Missions of Chiquitos
At the turn of the 17th century, Jesuit missionaries in Bolivia began to build a series of redduciones de indios (settlements of Christianized Indians) in what is now known as the Chiquitanía region of Bolivia. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991, the buildings have been restored to their former glory and are a treat for any history or architecture buff.
Spiritual and political home to the Tiwanaku people, a pre-Incan civilization, this ancient city flourished from about 400-900 A.D. Many of the ruins are still extremely well preserved and add to the number of UNESCO World Heritage sites in Bolivia.
