From the reflective Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest existing salt flats, to the dramatic Andes Mountains, one of the world’s longest mountain ranges, to the surreal Atacama desert, one of the driest places in the world, to the Amazon, the world’s largest tropical rainforest, Bolivia’s impressive otherworldly landscapes will simply blow the mind of any unsuspecting visitor. Add in spouting geysers and the rare opportunity to encounter flamingos in the wild and you’ll understand why this country is every nature lover’s dream destination.
Turn your gaze to Bolivia’s capital, La Paz, and you’ll be just as surprised by its wonders. It not only possesses the highest cable car in the world, which you can board for a birdseye view of the buzzing city, but also an up-and-coming gourmet scene that was thrust into the international spotlight when Noma’s founder opened a new restaurant championing local produce and delicacies. Time your trip to Bolivia right and you can even participate in an epic biennial cultural festival spanning over 20 towns!
