You get to learn so much by travelling, be it local travel or to different parts of the world!
Bolivia is located in the center of South America, a country which is known not only for its world famous Uyuni salt desert, but also for the rugged Andes mountains, arid landscapes of the Atacama Desert, a part of Amazon basin forest, a unique culture and their famous belief in black magic!
I am covering 2 days exploring La Paz and its surroundings, the Bolivian capital, and shall share the other parts in my subsequent blogs!
Indian citizens can obtain an on arrival visa if they are landing at the major airports like Santa Cruz and La Paz, however should get a visa stamped from the home country in case they are planning to enter from any other airport or land border.
On arrival visa cost is 52 USD
From what I have read, if you apply for the visa from your home country, it is free of cost and takes about a week to arrive. Please call and check on the latest information regarding this, as I traveled to Bolivia in 2016, and this may have changed by now.
It makes sense to combine your trip with few other countries of South America, especially if you are traveling from India or even Europe to make the whole trip cost effective. Bolivia is far away, there is no point in paying a lot on flights and just visit a single country in a trip!
I traveled London- Madrid -La Paz.
2 days exploring La Paz and around
We landed at La Paz airport early morning and were picked up straight by our tour company for a tour to Lake Titicaca.
Unfortunately our luggage was misplaced by the airline, hence we had to refresh at the airport before getting picked up at the lobby.
