Follow that Road
We followed the Dakar Rally through Bolivia in 2015...no tourists for 5 days...'cos we had a private tour! .

Guess that's the risk entering Bolivia from Chile which has to be the biggest hill climb on the planet. We did that road downhill not uphill so we know!!! Really interesting to see these stunning areas in snow, Peter. We did it in summer. Makes me want to do Bolivia again in Winter as the only snow on volcanoes for us was in the altiplano of the Atacama Desert in Chile. I've posted some of your pics in Follow that Road thread in the Photography Forum.

Trust me...pretty rare occurence...
No travel agent was making money that week as they had to juggle with the changes...Cordillera were pretty amazing at it....but wait for Uyuni Salar picks...we missed the geysers...but we had something special at our next stop...and as said, it was my second visit, so I was all at a win...seeing new places! Love this place, big time!
