3 Day Jeep Tour: Salar de Uyuni

After a harrowing 8 hour bus trip from Sucre to Uyuni, I was relieved just to be off the bus and on firm ground again.

Walking With Dinosaurs

Island HomeStay On Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca is shared by Peru and Bolivia, and at 3,812m above sea level, is the highest navigable lake in the world and the largest lake in South America.

Machu Picchu!

Machu Picchu is 2,430m above sea-level, situated on an ‘eyebrow’ between the Andes and the rainforest. Built in the fifteenth century Machu Picchu was abandoned when the Inca Empire was conquered by the Spaniards in the sixteenth century, although the Spanish never found Machu Picchu. It was rediscovered in 1911 and since then has been a site many dream of visiting. Read more
