Photo Tour: Cordillera Apolobamba & Kallawaya Trail – 12 Days

There are countless of locations in the Bolivian highlands that merit a visit…the Apolobamba Range is a hidden gem!

The Apolobamba is a long way from the tourist route thus we cannot count on suitable accommodations near our prime locations, so we will spend some of the tour days camping, but that is a blessing as...

The rainy season in Bolivia is from December to March and that is when Bolivia gets their rain – and specifically the Bolivian highlands get their snow – which causes flooding on the Altiplano. At 11,890′ (3,625m) above sea...
