Description:   Bolivia is a land locked country in South America. It has the highest capital city in the world in La Paz. There are many ancient Indian temples and ruins which are well worth a visit. We would recommend that you take your time if you will be planning to go to the higher parts of the country (5900 m -12,000 ft) as if you are not used to the high altitude you can get very sick. If you look at the links below they will be able to best advise you as to how to acclimatise to the altitude.
