I’ve arrived in Bolivia from the Peruvian border, spent a couple of days in Copacabana/Isla Del Sol on the lake Titicaca (3812m altitude) before heading to La Paz, the super hilly, authentic and bubbly city of Bolivia, the highest capital in the world (3640m). The Death Road by bike is not to be missed with its impressive scenery is a thrilling experience. From there I flew to Rurrenabaque, a city at the border of the Amazonian jungle for a three day trek in the Pampas, with its exotic wildlife: a 3.5m anaconda, many piranhas (easy to fish, not so great to eat) and many pink dolphins and caimans amongst others. And last but not least, the south of the country towards Chile: Los Salar de Uyuni (the famous pristine desert of salt), the 3000m+ Altiplano, high Bolivian plateau with its hot springs, geysers and lagunas full of flamingoes. Bolivia has easily shown one of the most stunning nature I’ve ever seen during all my trips.
