Altiplano Bolivias Wilderness.

At 4000m this 2 day wilderness crossing across the Altiplano into Chile was going to be an adventure. After reading descriptions such as treacherous and inhospitable i knew that this was going to be unforgettable.

The Altiplano is a vast desert plateau in the Andes mountains, a desolate landscape sculpted by extreme weather conditions whereby very little can survive.

We stopped for the night at a small isolated village where llamas definitely out numbered people.
Rustic is one word that could be used a describe our accommodation whether it was yet fully completed or already crumbling into decay was debatable but at least there was a bed to rest our shaken body’s.
The walls just about kept the wind out but did nothing to beat the cold (-20) , there were hot showers unfortunately they were frozen.I don’t think even bedbugs would survive here however llamas they looked totally at home.
