Sights in Bolivia

Edit This

Any trip to central south America should include a variety of important Bolivia sights. Bolivia is a landlocked country that is wedged in between Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Chile and Peru, making it an excellent stop off in between any of these countries. Its easy accessibility means that people oftentimes travel through this country, but there is a wide variety of exciting sights to see in Bolivia, and it can be a worthwhile destination in and of itself.

La Paz

La Paz is the capital city of Bolivia, and is a unique and beautiful place. This city is situated at the highest elevation of any capital city in the world, with an average elevation level of over 12,000 feet. La Paz is home to many famous sights and interesting cultural activities, including the Witch's Market, a popular (and bizarre) festival of stalls and outdoor stores.

Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca is the highest elevation lake in the world, and features a variety of different tourist attractions. One of the most interesting aspects of the lake is the indigenous group known as the Uros that call it home. These ancient peoples have built small artificial islands all around the lake on which they live.

Salar de Uyuni

One of the most visually stunning places on the planet, the Slar is Bolivia's salt flat. Sprawling over 4000 square miles, the salt flat is the largest in the world. It's home to a strange brand of tourist that seeks adventure in a stark and desolate place; there are various hotels and accommodations made from salt across the flats.

Madidi National Park

The National Park at Madidi contains the upper area of the Amazon River basin. It's full of a wonderfully diverse array of life and is a dramatic contrast to the desolation of other parts of Bolivia, particularly the Salar de Uyuni.

Bolivia is a politically unstable and largely undeveloped country. For many peole this acts as a strong deterrent of tourism. The country is prone to internal strife and violence. However, many tourists find that the people of this country are welcoming and inviting, and that tourists are generally free from danger. As with any developing country, it's important that you thoroughly research the area before visiting, and that you take as many safety precautions as possible to ensure your successful trip.
