Sucre – Potosi – Uyuni – La Paz. The UNESCO-listed city of Potosi is home to one of the world’s longest continually operated silver mines. An optional excursion will give you the opportunity to descend down a working mine and witness archaic mining methods that are still practiced today. We continue to the world’s largest salt lake, Salar de Uyuni. Explore the stunning landscapes between the salt lake and Chile’s Atacama Desert by four wheel drive vehicle. The area’s unusual landscape of mountains, active volcanoes, colossal cacti and geysers is like nowhere on earth. Leaving this surreal terrain we head towards La Paz via an overnight bus journey. The highest city in the world, La Paz is built in the basin of a canyon with the snow-capped Mount Illimani in the background. Wander through the vibrant Indian street markets and the fascinating Witches’ Market or visit attractions further afield like the rock formations of Moon Valley or Coroico, the gateway to the Bolivian jungle region.
