BOLIVIA: Tailor-made holidays
Bolivia is the highest and most isolated of the South American republics, with stupendous Andean landscapes, which is why this landlocked country is nicknamed ‘the Tibet of the Americas’. It shares Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake, with Peru. It boasts of the highest capital city in the world, La Paz, the most important archaeological site, Tiahuanaco, the self-sustaining empire that held sway from 400BC to between 1000 and 1100AD. Use your imagination to picture this regal city of multi-terraced platform pyramids, courts, temples, monolithic statues and urban areas, all once painted, gilded and clad in luxurious textiles.
