History of Bolivia

Bolivia was once part of the mighty Inca Empire, which Lake Titicaca, rich in Inca heritage and an unmissable stop on a tour of Bolivia, lays testament to. In earlier history, Bolivia was home to the great empire of Tiwanaku, one of the most influential civilisations in the Andes. On a tour of Bolivia today you can visit the ancient ruins of the city of Tiwanaku in the west of the country. In 1533, Spanish conquistadors conquered the Inca Empire and, after finding precious silver reserves in Bolivia, it became a valuable source of wealth for the Spanish Empire who founded cities such as La Paz, Cochabamba and Oruro

Due to the enforced labour imposed on the indigenous population a general feeling of unrest exploded into full-scale rebellions and uprisings against the conquistadors in the 18th-century. The Great Rebellion of Bolivia was ultimately unsuccessful and was crushed by 1782, but in 1809 there emerged a more organised rebellion, coinciding with the Napoleonic Wars in Europe

Following 16 years of war, a Bolivian Republic was declared in 1825, named in honour of the South American liberator, Simon Bolivar. The 20th-century saw an increase in tin mining, replacing the prominence of silver in Bolivia, but the conditions of the general population were poor, despite the relative prosperity of the country as a whole. In 1952 a revolution, led by the Revolutionary Nationalists Movement, introduced reformed to improve the quality of life of the masses, but this was not long-lived. The remainder of the century played host to many more coups and political instability. Democracy in Bolivia was finally restored in 1997. 

 

Nature in Bolivia

Bolivia is huge; in fact, it’s the fifth largest country in South America and boasts some of the most diverse landscapes imaginable. If you’re looking to step outside of your comfort zone and witness some of the world’s most unique natural wonders, then a trip to Bolivia is for you. Here, you can experience climatic zones ranging from humid and tropical to knee-knocking cold in just one day. A holiday to Bolivia is also a great eco-travel choice as the country famously protects its wildlife and pristine landscapes with the ‘Law of Rights of Mother Earth’

The breathtaking Salar de Uyuni is perhaps the most famous natural attraction in Bolivia. Exquisitely photogenic and simply otherworldly, these salt flats, which stretch for over 4000 square miles, are the largest in the world. Formed from ancient lakes, your experience when visiting Salar de Uyuni can vary depending on the time of year. During the seasonal rains, the flats transform into a mirror-like surface, reflecting the crisp Andean skies. 

At other times, you’ll encounter a salty, textured landscape, like something from another planet. Talking of out of space, the Valley of the Moon is another must-see sight on a package holiday to Bolivia.  A Mars-like landscape with strange rock formations, it is a popular hiking destination. You cannot visit Bolivia without making the journey to Lake Titicaca, the famous body of water that Bolivia shares with neighbouring Peru. The highest navigable lake in the world, situated at an amazing 12,500 feet above sea level in the Andes, most visit Lake Titicaca to unearth its fascinating Inca heritage. In the north of the country, you’ll find the Amazon basin, home to unique wildlife such as pink river dolphins. Other native wildlife includes the elusive jaguar, the spectacled bear and the iconic Guanaco, a llama-like animal found in the Altiplano. 

 

Culture in Bolivia

The indigenous peoples of the Andes and lowlands make up a large proportion of the country’s population, thus their traditions and ways of life are integral parts of Bolivian culture. Being such a multi-cultural country, Bolivia has an amazing 36 official languages, besides Spanish. Culture is proudly celebrated and if you stay in a city or town when you visit Bolivia you’re sure to feel as is street celebrations and parades are a constant feature of Bolivian life. It’s true that Bolivians love to celebrate, whether it be a religious ceremony, a commemoration of an important historical date or a festival in honour of a much-loved deity. If you travel to Bolivia you’re sure to notice the colourful nature of everyday life; from the vibrant clothing of the locals to the live music played in city plazas and the national arts and crafts scene. Santa Cruz is known as the centre of Bolivian art so be sure to visit if you’re interested in the artistic traditions of Bolivia’s indigenous cultures.
