Trekking through Bolivia is an unforgettable experience, due to the breathtaking landscapes and diversified scenery it offers. Most treks start from the capital, La Paz or Sorata and can last three to six days according to the destination, Coroico being one of the most popular.
Jungle excursions are also a unique experience, one may explore either by motorized canoes or on jungle paths leading through luxuriant plant life with a chance to get a glimpse at the wildlife.
Another great excursion is up the Cordillera Real led by guides and mules or a tour of the Salar Uyuni the highest salt flats in the world.
The Lake Titicaca is probably one of the most renowned and extraordinary sites in Bolivia, as well as the highest navigable lake in the world. Scattered with islands, this enormous lake hosts dwellings made entirely from reeds that grow in the lake.
Bolivia offers a temperate climate that can vary considerably from day to night due to its elevated position. November to March is the rainy season and in the north east near the Andes the climate is semi tropical.
