Undiscovered Bolivia holds many treasures for its visitors. A large part of this beautiful country exists out of highlands, offering wonderful yet challenging trekking opportunities. Leading down ancient Inca routes while passing breathtaking landscapes and different ecosystems, El Choro is one the most stunning and varied treks of Bolivia. Once, this trek was part of the famous Inca Trail network Qapac Ñan leading through all the Inca countries.
Located in a valley next to the Titikaka Lake in West Bolivia lies a hidden gem that has remained off-the-beaten-path for more than 500 years: the town of Sampaya. Even though the lake attracts thousands of tourists every year, only a few take time to discover the amazing architecture and engineering of this town, learn about the Aymara culture, and admire its stunning nearby landscapes.
Located in the South Western region of Bolivia, the Uyuni Salt Flats are the largest (10500 m2) and highest (3650 meters above sea level) salt flat in the world. Travelers can access this area from La Paz, Bolivia’s administrative capital by plane, private transportation or bus, and from Oruro and Potosi by bus or private transportation.
