Cloud burst

In the middle of the day with the clear air at approximately 4000 m above sea level, the air was very clear and blue. The temperature was about zero but the sun provided a sort of warmth.

Coral forest

Along the road we came across this "stone forest" which turned out to be an ancient coral forest. At some stage this was below sea level but now was over 3,500m above sea level. There were even petrified trees incorporated into the coral.

Volcano #1

One of hundreds of volcanoes littered throughout the Alto Plano landscape. This must have been a very volatile area at one stage.

High desert

The Alto Plano region is one of the highest plateaus in the world at 4000 - 5000m above sea level. Cold, with very thin air, it was a challenge for the week we were there.

High Desert plain

Apart from the incredibly dominant volcano mountains, there were rolling deserts of dirt and gravel, no plant life to be seen.

Mud Pools

Although most volcanoes in Bolivia are classified as extinct, when standing near these pools of boiling mud and geysers, it was not hard to believe you were in the bowl of a volcano.
