We’re heading to South-Lipez, next to the border between Bolivia and Chili. We take on a difficult 4×4 track. We’re ready for the lagunas: beautiful lakes with amazing colors located more than 4 000 meters above sea level.
Second star to the right and straight on till morning… We followed the directions and took off ! You just have to reach the Salar of Uyuni in the middle of the raining season. It is flodded and turns into a giant mirror, giving access to the sky.
As soon as we arrive in Bolivia, we decide to take little back tracks to reach the Salar of Uyuni. Wrong pick ! With the raining season, everything is flooded. Hard to find our way through the rivers, the mud and the canyons.
Here we are, almost leaving Bolivia, at the border with Peru, next to lake Titikaka.
Bolivian people love to spend their vacation here…. and guess what : the incas loved it too !
We decide to explore the amazonian forest in Bolivia. But to get there, we need to take the road of death. The path is narrow, on the side, 2000 meters of nothing…
