During My travel to Latina America in 2018, I made my way through Bolivia for a 1 week trip, I felt in love by the sheer majesty of the landscapes of this incredible country. Every day brought new adventures and sights that left me breathless, and I am so grateful to have had the chance to explore it all.
After spending the first night in the Uyuni village, I visited the Salt Desert, which was simply awe-inspiring. The vast, flat expanse of salt is as white as snow, stretching out as far as the eye can see. I learned that this desert was once a prehistoric salt lake, and the salt that remains is so pure that it is still used today to produce table salt. I took a short trip to Incawasi Island, also known as the Cactus Island, where I was able to take in the unique desert landscape and the towering cacti that call this place home. It was truly a surreal experience to be surrounded by these magnificent plants and to take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding salt flats.
Next, I headed to Laguna Colorada and Huayllajara. The Laguna Colorada is a stunning body of water with vibrant red, green, and blue hues that seem to change with the light. I was in awe as I took in the panoramic views of this natural wonder, and I was also lucky enough to spot some of the local wildlife, including flamingos, that call this place home. I also had the chance to visit the Stone Tree, a natural formation that looks like it was carved out of rock. This unique spot was just as captivating as the Laguna Colorada, and I was left in awe by the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
I Also h had the chance to visit the Laguna Verde. This stunning green lake is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and a brilliant blue sky, making for a contrast of colors that is simply breathtaking. I took a hike along the shore, taking in the views and breathing in the fresh mountain air. I was truly in awe of the natural beauty of this place, and I was grateful for the opportunity to experience it.
The, I made a stop at the Sol de Mañana geyser field, located near Laguna Colorada. This active geyser field is a stunning natural wonder, featuring steam vents and bubbling mud pools. I was in awe as I approached and witnessed the boiling water and steam shooting into the air. The heat was intense, but the views were truly breathtaking. The Sol de Mañana geyser field is a must-visit for nature and adventure lovers, offering a unique and unforgettable experience in the Andes mountains
Bolivia is a country that is full of surprises, and my trip was no exception. From the Salt Desert to the Incawasi Island, from Laguna Colorada to Laguna Verde, every stop along the way was a feast for the senses. I highly recommend this incredible country to anyone looking for an adventure that they will never forget. Book your trip to Bolivia today and get ready for an experience like no other!
In one of my upcoming blog posts, I’ll share with you the thrilling story of my trip to La Paz with my wife. Despite our initial excitement, we encountered some challenges with the corrupted system and ended up spending two unexpected days in a hospital. It was a test of our resilience, but also a chance to see the strength of the human spirit. I can’t wait to share all the details with you in my next post.
