I will visit Bolivia and Peru, next week for two and half weeks.
I visited Uyuni one day tour, Isla del Sol, Santa Cruz trek (in North Peru) last time, so this will be my second visit. I plan some of the places such as;
Uyuni 2N3D circle tour
Sajama by myself, just go and walk around then come back
Yungus, maybe in Chulumani and have a easy hiking
Trek from La Pas, if I can find a organized tour to join, Pico Austria, Tuni Condoriri, Sorata – laguna / gracier,
Arequipa and canon del Corca tour…
