South America has various countries famous for its tourism, yet we hardly hear about Bolivia.

In contrast to that, the silver lining is that the country is less crowded and extremely budget-friendly with attractions, activities, and accommodations.
Bolivia may be one of the less-visited countries, but it is home to an array of natural wonders, like the Andes Mountains, Atacama Desert, and bordering a small part of the Amazon Rainforest. These natural wonders are spread wide across many South American countries, and Bolivia is one of them that holds some part of these three alluring natural tourist attractions. Straddled with Peru, Bolivia also has the largest lake of South America known as “Lake Titicaca.”
Bolivia is home to much more mind-blowing natural attractions and offers a variety of activities such as hiking, climbing, trekking, kayaking, and mountain biking. Death road is one of the most dangerous roads in the world, and biking on death road adds sufficient thrill to your adventurous journey.
