  • The following attractions offer a once- in - a - lifetime experience.

Tiwanaku

  • This is one of the most important precursors to the Inca Empire.
  • Tiahuanaco represents the greatest megalithic architectural achievement of pre- Inca South America.

Salar de Uyuni

  • It's one of the flattest places on earth covering 4000- square- miles of salt flats formed by a prehistoric lake.
  • I'd recommend visiting this site during the rainy season as water overlying the cemented bricks of salt reflects a spectacular view of the sky.

  • Near the South- Eastern shore of the lake lies Tiwanaku.
