From ominous Andean mountains to the steamy Amazon jungle and everything in between, breathtaking vistas greet intrepid travelers at seemingly every turn in Bolivia. Largely undiscovered by mass tourism, this is a land of unrivaled beauty with scenery so splendid it leaves onlookers with jaws agape. Here are a few examples.

La Paz

Built into a dramatic bowl-shaped valley, the unique geography of this crazy mountainous city is best enjoyed from the teleferico (cable car) as you soar through the sky.

The Milluni Graveyard

A community of brave miners tried to stand up to a brutal dictator in the 1960s which tragically resulted in the Massacre of Milluni. Today, they rest in peace under the shadow of the ominous Huayna Potosi.

Huayna Potosi

Speaking of Huayna Potosi, the views from its peak over the Cordillera Real leave travelers breathless, not least for the 6,088 m (19,973 feet) thin high altitude air.

Those without the inclination to scale a mammoth mountain should head to the more accessible Tuni Cordoriri instead, where an easy hike affords unbeatable views.
