Lake Titicaca

After a 4 hour bus ride including one ferry crossing we reached the town of Copacabana near the border between Bolivia and Peru. Lake Titicaca is a source of great pride for Bolivia and quite rightly so. It is the world’s largest high altitude lake and sits at 3,808 metres above sea level. The Bolivian…

La Paz a La Paz a La Paz….

Chile to Bolivia by 4wd

After disembarking the Pachamama Bus in San Pedro de Atacama we hung around there for 2 nights to get used to the altitude.
