Bolivia is an expansive, landlocked plateau of barren plains, lush jungle and fertile highland valleys. From the high Andes to the Amazon Basin, with a fascinating history and captivating scenery, Bolivia will be sure to excite.
The dramatic geography offers many adventure opportunities: Take a boat trip on Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake, explore the bustling Witches Market in La Pazz, witness a sunrise over the surreal landscape of Salar de Uyuni, stroll through the enchanting colonial town of Sucre and UNESCO World Heritage City of Potosi or track wildlife in the remote Amazon Basin. Bolivia has the largest indigenous population of any country in South America, the majority of whom still maintain their traditional culture and beliefs, making this one of the most fascinating countries to visit.
The climate of Bolivia varies drastically from one eco-region to the other, from the tropics in the eastern llanos to a polar climate in the western Andes. The summers are warm, humid in the east and dry in the west, with rains that often modify temperatures, humidity, winds, atmospheric pressure and evaporation, yielding very different climates in different areas. When the climatological phenomenon known as El Niño takes place, it causes great alterations in the weather. Winters are very cold in the west, and it snows in the mountain ranges, while in the western regions, windy days are more common. The autumn is dry in the non-tropical regions.
