Inti Travel and Tours - Bolivia - The Undiscovered Country
"It appears to me that nothing can be more improving to a young naturalist than a journey in distant countries." - Charles Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle
 
BOLIVIA - THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY

There are few countries in the world quite as fascinating as Bolivia.  This marvelous country located in the "heart of South America" houses the most diverse geographical environments, beginning with the Highlands in the west, an immense flat plateau always protected by their eternal "guards", the majestic Andes Range.  Also Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world and genesis of the main Andean civilization of the southern part of America, the Aymaras.

In the eastern flanks of the Andes Range is the rich Yungas subtropical area, the rain forest where everything that you plant grows, like the magic plant of the Incas, the Coca.  There are many pre-Inca trails that were used to connect the tropics with the highlands through the Andes Range, showing impressive landscapes from the snow capped mountains over 6,000 m. to the last branches of the range at 1,000 m. entering the Amazon.

The big valleys from the central part to the south are the permanent suppliers of grain and vegetables for the highlands. This area has been Quechua speaking since Inca times.  They range in elevation from 2,000 m. to 3,000 m. with mild weather all year round.

All eastern Bolivia, from north to south is where Bolivian treasures of green nature are, from the most unimaginable virgin jungles of the Amazon basin in the north, to the dry River of La Plata or Chaco area in the south.  Many pristine areas previously without communication or human settlements are now National Parks, slowly increasing their organization and infrastructure to satisfy the needs of ecotourism.

Another important treasure of the country is the rich living culture that has survived until present times, with 32 different social groups and being over 50 % of the population.  This legacy is so strong and diverse, that you can have live festivities and cultural events all year round, from really mystical and spiritual ones in the Andes, to the wildest and most exotic ones in Santa Cruz and the tropics.
