Salt flats Puna Altiplano


Adventure Holidays in Altiplano

The high Altiplano, which runs through the south of Peru, into Bolivia, is a harsh, rugged, beautiful, surreal landscape. The region was home to the ancient Incan civilisation and today visitors can see some of the best preserved remains of this ancient culture in the Bolivian Altiplano. With no shortage of rumbling volcanos, steamy geysers, salt flats, rock formations and arid desert there is plenty to get excited about while working your way through the plateau. Endless lagoons - including the emerald green ‘Laguna Verde’ lagoon - are there too cool you off after a days’ walking. This expansive landscape may seem deserted, but chinchillas, alpacas, llamas and – bizarrely – large groups of flamingos who breed in the region’s salt lakes.
