Bolivia–the rooftop of the world–is a land of tropical destinations, spectacular landscapes, vibrant festivals, unique cultures, and whatnot. The land is truly an oasis of untouched natural beauty that lies on high elevated lands.
There’s no getaway destination like Bolivia, the home of Andean City, where the lands are filled with green forests, shimmering lakes and lots of cultural extravagance to see.
If you are planning a trip that will immerse you in nature’s beauty, like none seen before, then we suggest you pack your bags and book a ticket to Bolivia.
Here are the five best places to see when you find yourself on the rooftop of the world:
1. Lake Titicaca
One of the most breathtaking sights in Bolivia is the one that is Lake Titicaca. Lapping the shores of Copacabana, this lake is vast and a unique shade of blue. The surrounding area of the lake is also the birthplace of an empire. In Lake Titicaca, you can enjoy a panoramic view, as you polish off freshly caught troche and explore the surrounding areas.
And if you want to get up and close with Lake Titicaca then we suggest take a boat ride from Copacabana to Isla del Sol and delve into the Inca ruins hidden among the scattered islands.
2. La Paz
La Paz is one of the heartiest metropolises in Bolivia. This hub of a city is situated against the backdrop of snow-capped mountains. You can have fun-filled days and nights in this Bolivian city that has a number of bars, cafés, plazas, historic architecture and colonial edifices to offer, among many other things.
There’s not a second to waste when you are in La Paz, because there is just so much to soak in this pulsating city.
A city with four names, Sucre will take you back to the colonial Spain of the 16th century, with its classic historical buildings. In fact, you can even stay here and experience living in a home that would otherwise be difficult to find in the rest of the world.
4. Salar de Uyuni
It’s not called rooftop of the world for nothing. Bolivia has places so unique, and experiences so other worldly that you just cannot look away. Salar de Uyuni is one of the flattest places in the world. Walking on it is like walking on a glass that reflects the clouds.
If you are lucky enough to experience rain in Bolivia, then we suggest you rush to Salar de Uyuni and experience it as its most spectacular form.
5. Oruro Carnival
The beauty of the natural lands of Bolivia is not the only thing to look forward to. The natives, the cultures, and their festivals are a sight to behold as well. Brave the dizzying heights of Altiplano region of Bolivia, and make way to the mining town that hosts one of the most famous festivals in all of South America.
The carnival offers a fiesta that cannot be missed, and memories that remain unforgettable for the rest of your life.
