From here on out is just a story of taking trips around the area during my holiday to Bolivia – not a Bolivian Holiday.
During my Bolivia holidays I caught the night time bus from La Paz to Uyuni and arrived early the following early morning. The subsequent day I set out with five other travelers in a Toyota Land Cruiser to explore the salt lake. Nothing could get me ready for that very first glimpse. We drove into the center of the salt lake and as far as the eye could see was white salt and the blue sky. We visited the odd small 'Fish Island', which is coated in 1000's of cacti and then took the customary amusing pictures on the salt. Due to there becoming no perception of distance, you can develop some truly remarkable photographs like the ones you see on our website. These are just the types of pictures you will want to take for your Bolivia holidays getaway album.
The southwest circuit - This area to the south of the Bolivian salt flats is dotted with extinct volcanoes and colored lakes. Right after the Salar de Uyuni I didn't think I was going to be incredibly impressed with the rest of the journey, but I was really significantly mistaken. The surroundings is just remarkable, llamas and Alpacas roam the area, flamingos feed in the lakes and with visits to some sizzling springs and exploding geysers, I had a incredibly memorable three day journey.
Potosi - This is the world's greatest metropolis at an altitude of 4070m. The metropolis is rather quite beautiful with its colonial architecture, but it's the surrounding silver mines that are the primary attraction right here. Potosi was the richest town in the earth due to the abundance of silver in the surrounding mountains and numerous of the mines however exist right now. I went on a guided trip to the mines to see the ailments in which the miners do the job and to meet several of the miners. We visited the nearby market place on the way to the mine so we could all get a few tiny gifts for the miners, these kinds of as coca leaves, cigarettes and even a stick of dynamite!
Sucre - It's identified as 'The White City' (as the majority of buildings are painted in white), has even extra examples of colonial archeticture than Potosi and was even declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991. From La Paz there are two approaches to get to Rurrenabaque, the gateway to the Bolivian Amazon. The trip will involve an awesome bus journey of between 18 to 24 hours. The journey was really memorable. The jungle lodge I stayed at was a four hour boat experience deep into virgin rain forest. We went on many various boat and walking safaris, learnt all about jungle survival and even went Piranha fishing.
Isla del Sol - The island of the sun is located on Lake Titicaca around to the lovely city of Copacabana. I caught the bus from La Paz and 4 hrs later on I arrived in the attractive tiny town of Copacabana. I'd been to Puno on the Peruvian facet of Lake Titicaca ahead of, but this was so considerably nicer and a spot I could have stayed at for pretty some time. I obtained a boat early one morning to the far stop of the island and devote the future six hrs strolling to the most important village on the Island where I was remaining for the evening. The views had been amazing and there were plenty of remarkable Inca sites along the way.
