The NEW Lonely Planet Bolivia travel Guide

Superlative in its natural beauty, rugged, vexing, complex and slightly nerve-racking, Bolivia is one of South America’s most diverse and intriguing nations.

Tour the epic salt flats of Salar de Uyuni, wake to the sounds of the rainforest in the Parque Nacional Madidi, or walk in the path of the Incas in the Cordillera Real; all with your trusted travel companion.

Lonely Planet writer Isabel Albiston describes why she loves Bolivia. "My first impressions of la paz are imprinted on my mind: steep narrow streets, piercing blue skies, colourful textiles, popcorn vendors in pigeon-filled squares. what I took to be a parade (people in traditional Andean dress with drums) turned out to be a political protest. i was hooked! In Bolivia, traditional life is interspersed with 21st-century modernity like a mixed-up pack of photographs. It's a country of sublime landscapes, where true adventures are possible in a way that often eludes travelers. The swaths of wildlife-filled forests and the immensity of the mountains always draw me back."
