Bolivia is on of the least known countries in South America in part due to it’s underdeveloped status and landlocked nature. However it is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world including the vast expanses of the Uyuni Salta plains, the towering heights of the Cordillera Real and some of South America’s best preserved Amazonian rain forest. All of this is made more dramatic by the jagged peaks of the Andes which divides the cold dry altiplano from the humid tropical lowlands. It’s lack of development also makes Bolivia in a sense the most authentic South American destination. It’s indigenous culture it still strong through its music, religion and ancient traditions. And now with it’s first indigenous president in power, many of these traditions are being strengthened or revived.
