Bolivia is one of the more challenging South American countries for a road trip. Often the roads are dangerous, narrow and follow cliff edges. Brutal washboard tracks are punishing on both the vehicle and our bones. And the altitude can leave us breathless – if not careful, high altitude can be a killer.
But with a sensible approach to increasing our altitude, the pay back from Bolivia is more than worth the challenge!
From the snow-capped Andean peaks, the world’s largest salt flats and highest customs office to the kaleidoscope of lagoons, Bolivia showcases some of the best South American landscapes on offer. And we love it!
