Bolivia is sparsely populated and unspoilt by modern development, much of the land is untouched, preserving its natural beauty of rugged terrains, towering mountains, windswept plains and surreal salt flats. A trip through Bolivia will feel like a trip back in time. About 60% of the population identifies as indigenous, many of whom are maintaining traditional values and beliefs and often wear traditional dress. From the high mountain lakes of Titicaca to the steamy lowland jungles, Bolivia is an exciting destination with enormous cultural wealth, beautiful Andean landscapes and the remnants of mysterious ancient civilisations.
Bolivia is a land locked country and is traditionally regarded as a highland country, although only one third of its territory lies in the Andes mountains. Bolivia’s mountainous western region is one of the highest inhabited areas in the world. Much of its history has consisted of a series of coups and countercoups, with the last coup occurring in 1978. Democratic civilian rule was established in 1982, but leaders have faced difficult problems of deep-seated poverty, social unrest, and illegal drug production. In December 2005, Bolivians elected Movement Toward Socialism leader Evo MORALES president – by the widest margin of any leader since the restoration of civilian rule in 1982 – after he ran on a promise to change the country’s traditional political class and empower the nation’s poor, indigenous majority. In December 2009 and October 2014, President MORALES easily won re-election. His party-maintained control of the legislative branch of the government, which has allowed him to continue his process of change. In February 2016, MORALES narrowly lost a referendum to approve a constitutional amendment that would have allowed him to compete in the 2019 presidential election.
