Due to it’s geographical location, Bolivia has long been forgotten by the traveling world. But, why would anyone want to go to Bolivia in the first place? Well, how about for the most obvious reason…because very few people go there. The tourists that go to Bolivia are looking for something different…an intense cultural experience blended with awesome geography and an ancient history that is united with the power of nature at it’s wildest.
Bolivia has it all (except a sea coast) but it more than makes up for it with the rest of its geographical marvels. Within its borders and National Parks you’ll find high altitude deserts like the Altiplano and the incomparable world of the Sud Lipez; Lake Titicaca and it’s many ruins from the Incas and the Tihuanaco cultures; the Andes are represented with everything from volcanoes to granite walls to glaciers; the tropical Yungas region flanks the eastern ramparts of the Andes and eventually becomes the incomparable upper Amazon basin with thick jungle, savannahs and hundreds of rivers that wind their way north to the Amazon river; and the little-known scrubb forest and grasslands of the Chaco harbor a great variety of animals. Bolivia is a true wilderness park.
The history of Bolivia is long and varied and even today some of the ageless customs are still being carried out every day as they have for centuries. The ancient cultures like the Tihuanaco, Aymara, Quechua, Guarani and Incas have left evidence all over the highlands, valleys and tropics.
