Bolivia is wild. Our expedition to the adventurous and beautiful country is off to a great start with the team spending a little time in the high elevation city of La Paz before heading on to lake Titicaca. Here’s a first hand report from lead guide Topo Mena.
“Enjoying blue bird skies we left La Paz and headed to the Titicaca Lake. La Paz and its surroundings is at 4000m
(13,000′) so we want to take the first days easy. On the way to Copacabana, a beautiful lakeside town on Titicaca, we visited the ruins of Tiwanaku: the remains of an ancient culture that celebrated rituals to the sun and the moon. The atmosphere in this place filled our minds with questions about “how” they did such amazing architectural work with very limited tools. I guess that just like how a climber sometimes finds energy in an exhausted body and mind, when a human being pursues a dream: Everything is possible. Today we are exploring lake Titicaca and enjoying our last cervezas before we head to the Mountains. More coming soon…”
Good luck to the team! We’re looking forward to more updates!
