Salar de Ayuni and the Altiplano: Scenic landscapes in the Altiplano of Bolivia. Our photo tour in Bolivia leads through some of the worlds most fascinating landscapes. An the Altiplano, the high altitude Andean plateau, we will find stunning desert landscapes with herds of wild llamas, lagoons full of flamingos and snow capped volcanoes.
