Bolivia is a country that is not necessarily taken into account when it comes to travelling in South America. That is a big mistake. So why did I visit this country? For many reasons… One of them is the terrain itself. Bolivia’s location on the map is interesting enough to visit all the regions of this beautiful and poor country. Bolivia has also the highest altitude cities in the world. It is a very diverse place in terms of landscapes, people and languages.
My first stop in this country was the largest city and the highest administrative capital in the world – La Paz which is located at an altitude of 3640 m above sea level. Walking in this city with many hills around can be challenging. Not only because of the location but also because of the altitude sickness. The city has well-organized public transport in the form of cable car lines. Travelling in such a way is an amazing experience and a brilliant opportunity to take beautiful aerial photos. The most interesting places to see in La Paz are: The Witches’ Market, Calle Jean and Mirador Killi Killi.
Bolivia’s biggest attraction is undoubtedly the Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest dried-up salt lake. This is the only place of its kind where perspective photos have become popular. Fun with the camera in a large space – this is it!
The next place that will take your breath away is Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve. It’s a space where mother nature (Pachamama) played with the colours. You will find here many fascinating lakes of different hues, such as Laguna Colorada (red), Laguna Bianca (white), Laguna Verde (green) and more. Many beautiful rock formations, volcanoes, hot springs and flamingos – such a wonderful experience.
Despite the fact that my trip was quite exhausting, it was definitely worth coming in here. It’s a journey through sand and salt and over long distances in a small jeep. To sum it all up, sometimes you need to sacrifice yourself for all these unforgettable impressions and photos!
