Photos of Bolivia

New Zealand




This page has photos of Bolivia, including the Andes Mountains, Andean Mountain villages, Lake Titicaca, and a river adventure up the Rio Yacuma in the Bovivian Pampas. There are also many photos of Bolivian cities and villages, street scenes, and the people. City photos include La Paz, Sucre, Copacabana, Huayculi, and Calacoto. Bolivia still has extensive areas of unspoiled Amazon basin rainforest, making it a premier place for adventurous travelers to escape civilization and see tropical nature and wildlife as it's existed unchanged for centuries. The Choro Trek through the Andes Mountains extends through high Andes terrain as well as lower, lush Andean landscapes and passes through several Andean Mountain villages. Larger versions of these photos of Bolivia can be viewed by using a mouse rollover or by using the Slideshow below. See all TheWorldinLight has to offer at Destinations and Topics.
