All Top Places in Bolivia
  • Wir sind im Schneesturm auf 4900 Metern gestartet und sind jetzt bei Hitze im Dschungel auf 1900 Metern angekommen...Eine unfassbare Wanderung...so viele unterschiedliche Klimazonen und Landschaften in nur 3 Tagen...wir sind immer noch total geflasht!!

  • Schlafen mit Blick auf den See...Copacabana - ein süßes Örtchen mit tollen Marktständen..Eine der schönsten Unterkünfte, die wir je gesehen haben..Mit einem Lama als Mitbewohner...

  • La Paz is famous for the Death Road. It's a small dirty road in the mountains which was once the main road for cars and trucks. Nowadays it's only allowed to use the road for tourists by bike. The ride was 65km long and started on a height of 4650m and ended 1200m above sea level. It was huge fun even it was a bit scary too! 🚲😱

  • On the last day of our tour we had to get up very early: Breakfast was at 4 o'clock. We visited a desert where we saw various geysers and fumarolas. It was very cold but after we luckily could enjoy a bath in a hot spring - felt so good!

    Heading further we passed the desert of Dali and arrived first at the white lagoon and later at Laguna Verde with a great view of the volcano Licancabur.

    The tour ended when we reached the border to our next and fourth country: Chile.Read more

  • It is very easy to get to the Moon Valley from La Paz. We catched a taxi for 40 Bolivians (~5.50 $) and after a 30min drive through the city we were already there. It looked like a small Bryce Canion from the States and was definitly worth to visit! 🌛

  • If you are in Bolivia it is a MUST doing a tour to the Salar de Uyuni. We decided to book a 3 days tour which was recommanded to us because there is so much to see and we don't wanted to miss out anything of the beautiful landscape.

    In the office of Bolivia Hop / Altitude Adventures in La Paz we booked the tour. The overnight bus from La Paz to the departure destination Uyuni was quite nice and not that bad as expected. Because Bolivia is not well known for safe bus rides and we allready heard some bad stories about overnight buses in Bolivia we were a bit afraid of having a overnight bus. But the agency "Altitude Adventures" made sure that we has a safe ride. We slept quite well after a good night movie and arrived still alive in the small town Uyuni where finally our tour began. ☺️

    The first stop was a train cementery. The trains weren't used anymore, so they just let them there in the desert. Because they were made of metals, as for example copper, there are only wrecks left - the rest was stolen.
    Our second stop was in a small town called Colchani where we visited some small salt fabrics and got to know how they collect and process the salt from the salt flat.

    After that we had lunch in the middle of the salt flat which was very special. We had excellent food and went on to make the famous and well known illusion pictures in the salt flat.

    After climbing a small island in the middle of the salt flat with huge cactuses we had to hurry to see the sunset from another viewpoint. In the late afternoon we finally arrived in a hotel made of salt. There we had again really tasty food and a very nice private room.

  • Our first destination of Bolivia was a small hippie town which invites to relax. It looks like a surfer town but unfortunately the temperature of Lake Titicaca is only 12 degrees. So the only thing you can do there is to eat, drink and to enjoy the sunny weather on a rooftop bar ;-)

    On this condition we decided to visit in the afternoon "Isla del Sol" and to move on after dinner to the capital of Bolivia: La Paz.Read more

  • La Paz is the capital city of Bolivia. Its enormous size among big mountains is really impressive! It is the departure destination of a lot of different tours such as "Moon Valley", "Death Road" or "Salar de Uyuni".

  • On the second day we allready left the salt flat to see an other beautiful part of landscape: different lagoons!

    The first lagoon called Cañapa was full of pink flamingos. The second one was called Hedionda, equally full of flamingo but due to concentrated sulphur very smelly. 😷

    Later we visited a nature reserve with many unusual rock formations whitch inhabits the famous Stone Tree formed by wind. It is forbidden to climb it because scientists presidict a life no more than 7 years till it will break down...

    The last stop was at our favorite lagoon called Laguna Colorada. Just stunning!
