TOP BOLIVIA DESTINATIONS:

1. Uyuni Salt Flats

The Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt desert at nearly 12,000 square kilometers (7,456 sq mi), and sits at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft). It boats an extraordinary flatness and it is as deep as a few meters of salt crust. The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of pink flamingos. It is also a photographer’s paradise for its natural flatness and beautiful landscape.

2. Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve

The Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve in southwestern Bolivia is the country’s most visited protected area. Located at an altitude between 4,200 m (13,800 ft) and 5,400 m (17,700 ft). It extends over an area of 714,745 hectares (1,766,170 acres) and encompasses glacial salt lakes stained bright red or emerald green by microorganisms or mineral deposits. It beckons with its snowcapped volcanic peaks, frozen, high-altitude deserts, and strange rock formations similar to those found in Dalí paintings.

Created primarily for the protection of birds that inhabit its different lagoons, it protects part of the Central Andean dry puna (oligothermic) ecoregion. Its major attractions are erupting volcanoes, hot springs, geysers, lakes, fumaroles, mountains and its three endemic species of flamingos.

3. La Paz & Moon Valley

Founded in 1548 by Spanish conquistadors, La Paz is Bolivia’s third most-populous city, the seat of the country’s government and the capital of the La Paz Department. It is located on the western side of Bolivia, nestled between the Andes Mountains, at an altitude of roughly 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level. It also has the distinction of being the highest capital in the world. In La Paz, the Aymara culture and colonial-period influences are very much present even to this day.

Moon Valley is only a short drive from La Paz, yet boasts an amazing display of rock erosion patterns like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

4. Tiwanaku

Tiwanaku (Spanish: Tiahuanaco or Tiahuanacu) is a Pre-Columbian archaeological site in western Bolivia. The city of Tiwanaku, capital of a powerful pre-Hispanic empire that dominated a large area of the southern Andes and beyond, reached its apogee between 500 and 900 AD. Its monumental remains testify to the cultural and political significance of this civilization, which is distinct from any of the other pre-Hispanic empires of the Americas.

5. Lake Titicaca & Sun Island

Nestled between the Andean borders of Peru and Bolivia is the highest navigable lake in the world. Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of the Inca Sun god. Also the place from where the founders of the Inca Empire, Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo, emerged. It is home to many ruins on its many islands, and a place of tranquility and beauty.

Isla del Sol (Sun Island) is an island in the southern part of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia. There are over 80 ruins on Sun Island. Most of these date to the Inca period during the 15th century AD. Many hills on the island contain agricultural terraces, which adapt steep and rocky terrain to agriculture. Among the ruins on the island are the Sacred Rock, a labyrinth-like building called Chinkana, Kasa Pata, and Pilco Kaina.

7. Sucre & Potosi

The Historic City of Sucre, located in central-south Bolivia, was the first capital of Bolivia. Its many well-preserved 16th-century religious buildings illustrate the blending of local architectural traditions with styles imported from Europe. (UNESCO)

The City of Potosí was the world’s largest industrial complex for its modern extraction of silver ore in the 16th century. It was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the Americas until its mines were depleted. Today, Potosí is worth visiting for its beautiful churches, many decorated in silver, and its ornate colonial architecture.

Madidi National Park is one of the largest protected areas in the world. It is located in the upper Amazon River basin of Bolivia, and has an area of 18,958 square km. Madidi has more than 20,000 species and over 1,200 bird species, representing 14% of the world’s bird species.

8. Yungas

Yungas is situated in the northern region of Bolivia. It is mostly known for the road that connects the town of Coroico to the city of La Paz. The “World’s Deadliest Road”, is a phrased coined by the Inter-American Development Bank in 1995 as the road ascends to nearly 4,650m  (15,260 ft.), it is mostly single-lane and offers exquisite views of the Rainforest as it descends from the Altiplano.  It boasts cliff drops of nearly 600 meters (2,000 ft.), which excites thrill-seekers, including mountain-bikers from all over the world.
