Bolivia is divided into several distinct geographical areas:
- Altiplano which can be translated as the “high plain” is an inhabited region located in the heart of the Andes and at an average altitude of 3300 meters. This region is bounded by two mountain ranges; the Cordillera Oriental and the Cordillera Real. Bolivia has about 50 peaks above 5000 meters of altitude, the most famous of which are the Huayna Potosi at 6088m of altitude, east of Lake Titicaca or the Illimani at 6438m of altitude, which overlooks the city of La Paz. For the more adventurous and lovers of high peaks, we offer a trip to the highest point with the possibility of making three ascents.
- The Amazon, a large part of the Bolivian territory is covered by the mythical Amazonian forest. It is quite possible to discover this region with its typical fauna and flora, as well as coffee and cocoa by visiting the jungle in the Madidi Park, or the part of Rurrenabaque or the reserve of Pampa Yacuma to live unforgettable experiences. There are many lodges and little known routes to explore the Bolivian Amazon.
- Gran Chaco, or more precisely the Bolivian chaco, which encompasses most of the department of Santa Cruz, presents itself as landscapes with wooded plains similar to savannah to the Andean altiplano. The term “chaco” in Quechua means “class territory” and changes with the rhythm of the rainy and dry seasons.
