La Paz, Lake Titicaca, Sucre, Potosi & Uyuni
8 DAYS OF HERITAGE AND NATURE
The City of La Paz and its surroundings can transport you to a mysterious past where any corner, any street, is a hidden treasure where adventure begins; a living history that treasures the pre-Hispanic times with all their traditions and magic rites on its streets. The indigenous, colonial and modern areas, Indian Market, Witch Doctor’s Market & breathtaking panoramas are all framed by the majestic “Illimani” mountain.
Emerging from blue sapphire waters and surrounded by the Royal Range of the Andes, the “Sacred Lake of the Incas” has been always one of the most important life sources of the Andes, impelling the development of many ancestral cultures. Meet authentic cultures living as they did thousands of years ago, close to Mother Nature, without challenging or hurting her; walk in the solitude of the islands; enjoy the hospitality of our natives and learn from their traditional life style. The Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca is a joy for everybody who explores its sacred waters and its hidden treasures.
Sucre is a living expression of colonial times. The Cathedral, churches and cloisters, the second oldest University in South America- San Francisco Xavier, as well as the University Museum offers fine examples of anthropological remains. On Sundays one can visit the Tarabuco Market, full of colour, antique weavings and traditions, admiring the traditional costumes, which preserve their identity, as well as antique weavings displayed all over.
