Overview

Entering Bolivia overland is like travelling back in time. The main cities are horribly overcrowded and polluted. However, venture out in the wild and you’ll experience a way of life time has forgotten. Here the people don’t live ‘underdeveloped’ but live more inline with nature and the environment.

Geographically, Bolivia can be split into two regions, the High-lands and the Low-lands. The High-lands are home to the big tourist places in Bolivia. Uyuni Salt Flats, La Paz, Sucre and Lake Titicaca. But, if make your way down the rolling valleys towards Brazil, you’ll find some stunning scenery, amazing cultures and the friendliest people. This ‘middle ground’ was my favorite part of Bolivia.
