In September and October 2012 we travelled by bicycle on the Bolivian altiplano. The trip took five weeks to complete. The total distance cycled was around 800 kms.
We started and ended our trip in La Paz. We first hired a “taxi” to take us out of town. We started cycling in Copacabana on the shores of Lake Titicaca. then travelled south to Sajama. Then south to the Salar de Uyuni and finally Uyuni. There we chartered transport to take us back to the capital.
Crossing the Salar de Uyuni was without doubt the highlight of this trip.
