Bolivia offers a superb variety of natural and historical man made sites. In the urban areas, travelers can experience a culture that still retains influence from both the Inca and the Spanish, while outside, the pristine landscape is both beautiful and diverse. Despite its past problems, Bolivia provides an experience that adventure & culture lovers will embrace while getting fantastic travel photos all along the way.
To get started on your Bolivia trip planning, check out these three spectacular sights to experience & photograph:
Amboro National Park occupies a convergence of the Andes, the Amazon Basin, and the Gran Chaco. As a result, its environments are home to a remarkable array of exotic species, ranging from capybaras and peccaries to capuchin monkeys and spectacled bears. Most tours into Amboro National Park start either close to the Amazon rainforest or the foothills of the Andes. This area is a must visit for photographers.
Shining bright beneath the sun, Salar de Uyuni is the single biggest salt flat on the planet. Rich in sodium, lithium, and other useful materials, it is a site of significant economic value to Bolivia. However, its peculiar landscape is also a powerful attraction to visitors, who can find comfortable accommodation nearby and take interesting photographs of the landscape and each other.
Tiwanaku is the fallen capital of a Pre-Columbian empire that once stretched from Chile to Peru. Today, there are guided tours of the surviving sites. An on-site museum hosting one of three collections of artifacts retrieved from the ruins is a great visit while there. The other two collections can be found in La Paz.
