Lonely Planet knows how to do it right in Bolivia, of course.
Let’s close our eyes (wait…read this though) and picture ourselves being transported to one of the wildest parts of South America:
Simply superlative – this is Bolivia. It’s the hemisphere’s highest, most isolated and most rugged nation. It’s among the earth’s coldest, warmest, windiest and steamiest spots. It boasts among the driest, saltiest and swampiest natural landscapes in the world.
Top 5 things to do and see in Bolivia:
1. Salar de Uyuni – An eerie, otherworldly sea of salt that will haunt your daydreams for years to come.
2. Potosí – A wealth of colonial churches with fabulous paintings, and miners looking to strike it lucky in hell.
3. Sorata – Alluring spot for action or inaction, for exhilarating treks or swinging in a hammock.
4. Parque Nacional Torotoro – Thousands of dinosaur tracks criss-cross this rough and rugged beauty of a national park.
