Contemplating the immensity of the Salar de Uyuni, in a shot in which I look like a giant due to the unique perspective the salt flat offers.

It is really hard to describe the Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat on the planet. An immense, wind-swept and incredibly shining crust of salt that honestly took my breath away.

A mesmerizing place where nature shows its harshest side, and where even the visual laws of perspective seem to lose their meaning.

Rusting for decades in this harsh, flat land, these steam trains are relics of a different time. A time when the British built a railway connecting the mines of Bolivia with the Chilean ports on the Pacific. Today, they create an eerie and oddly enchanting junkyard.

Taking fun pictures at the Train Cemetery in Uyuni before exploring the incredible Salar.

I was so cool to climb into old train engines and carriages.

La Paz is fantastic mess, and one of the weirdest cities I have seen. The highest capital in the world (or de-facto capital), at 3,800 meters above see level, La Paz is surrounded by snowy peaks - none more imposing than Illimani, pictured here.

Fluffy McFlufferton 😍 When we started seeing alpacas and llamas all around us, we realized the worst part of the descent was over and that we could finally catch a breath. I don’t think we were ever in any real danger, but the risk of breaking a leg (or having to call a helicopter to come save us) couldn’t have been higher.

This is as far as we could get. The problem wasn’t physical preparedness (even though at 4,900 meters above sea level every step is 10 times harder), but the lack of proper equipment, a poorly organized tour and the fear of going down (and of taking too long to go down). The views were absolutely epic, with the Condoriri complex all around us and even Huayna Potosi peaking through the mountains in the distance.

Swipe right to see what the descent felt like 😱😱😱😱 What an adventure, eh @clau_iaco ?!

The peak on the right is the Kunturiri (or Condoriri in the Spanish version of the word), one of the most iconic peaks in Bolivia’s Cordillera Real. It’s also known as the ‘cabeza del condor’ - the head of the condor.

The 1-day trek we booked to reach the nearby Pico Austria was advertised as an easy hike that anyone reasonably fit can do. What they forgot to consider (or tell us) is the fact that it had snowed, heavily, just a few days earlier. Making the usual paths unusable.

From the Laguna Chiar Khota, we climbed a near vertical slope for 45 minutes, snow to the knees... without poles. The views were spectacular, but the tension was starting to rise, as we realized that we would soon have to go down an equally steep path covered in fresh snow.

One of the things I wanted out of this trip to South America was to truly experience the Andean landscape... with this excursion to the Tuni Condoriri range, I got more than I bargained for.

It all started well, with a beautiful, sunny morning in the Cordillera Real and an easy hike up to the Laguna Chiar Khota. The smiley face in this shot is proof we were off to a great start... things would soon change...

Epic views of the Cordillera Real on the two-hour bus ride from Lake Titicaca to La Paz.
Aside from a flight from Lima to Cusco and one from La Paz to Lima (at the beginning and at the end of the trip respectively), the itinerary was completed by land.
