The sights of Bolivia are among the most amazing in the world. It’s not a country that shouts tourism, but the attractions and sights of Bolivia really have to be seen to be believed. Bolivia is the 5th largest country in South America and is landlocked – the lack of a coastline usually limits the geographical attraction for any country, but not so with amazing landscapes of Bolivia. Let’s take a tour of some of the most wonderful sights of Bolivia.
1. Lake Titicaca
One of the sights of Bolivia that should not be missed is Lake Titicaca, which sits on the borders of Bolivia and Peru. It is the highest lake in the world at 12,500 feet above sea level and is the largest lake in South America. To the ancient Inca civilization, it was a sacred site. They believed the world was created from this lake by their god Viracocha. Archaeologists have uncovered an ancient temple and the site is further considered as the birthplace of the Inca civilization. The 41 islands of the lake are also regarded as sacred, in particular the Isla de Sol (Island of the sun).
