Bolivia is a nation full of extremes. The world’s highest capital, La Paz sits at a staggering 3,600 m; in the southwest of the country the largest salt flats in the world, the Salar de Uyuni, sprawl an incredible 10,582 km². It also shares the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca, with Peru. It is also one of South America’s poorest nations, but ironically one of the richest in terms of natural resources. Her people are proudly one of the continent’s most indigenous populated countries, with over 60% claiming to be of native heritage. A history littered with upheavals and struggles and blessed with some of the most striking landscapes on earth, Bolivia’s tale is one full of contrasts and contradictions.
