The upcoming trip to Bolivia and Peru is getting closer

Jump to last reply

Hi

My trip to Bolivia and Peru is gettting closer :d In the end of September we are flying to La Paz and I guess we will relax there for a few days to get used to the altitude. It is about 4000 meters above sea level so it can cause a bit of problems for the body :-o

We will probably take some day trips..probably to lake Titicaca, to Aymara ruins Tiahuanacu, Chacaltaya (which is 5395 meters above sea level).

We will also go to Macchu Picchu and Cusco in Peru but I’m afriad that we won’t get to take the inca trail walk :-<

We also plan to go to Salar de Uyuni (a salt lake in Bolivia), to Toro Toro and the Amazonas.

I look forward to the trip...it will be my first time in South America so it will be a new experience for me. We are visting the brother of a friend of mine and he is doing most of the planning for us and I think it will be good to have someone with local knowledge there.

Regards
Gard
