Bolivia is one of South America’s safest countries and surprisingly one of its least visited. Queen Victoria may be to blame, as she once crossed the country off a map and declared that “Bolivia does not exist.” That being said, don’t let her opinion keep you from visiting this beautiful country.

玻利維亞是南美最安全的國家之一,令人驚訝地也是最少人造訪的其中一個。維多利亞女王可能難辭其咎,因為她曾在地圖上劃掉這個國家,並宣稱「玻利維亞並不存在。」儘管如此,別讓她的意見阻止你造訪這個美麗的國家。

 

Many people visit Bolivia to see the Salar de Uyuni, where you can walk on the “sky.” This place is actually a salt flat, which is a kind of desert covered in salt. During the rainy season, the salt flat floodscreating a surface like a mirror, which makes it hard to tell where the sky ends and the earth begins. Take a photo, and it will look like you are floating in space.

許多人到玻利維亞是為了觀賞烏尤尼鹽沼,在那裡你可以在「天空」上行走。這個地方其實是鹽沼,是一種被鹽覆蓋的沙漠。雨季期間,鹽沼會淹水——創造出像鏡子一樣的表面,使人難以分辨天地的交界。拍張照,你就會看起來像是在太空中漂浮。

 

Another popular spot is Laguna Colorada. This otherworldly salt lake is only one meter deep, and its dark red color creates a jaw-dropping contrast against the deep blue sky. Although some claim the water is the blood of the gods, the blood-red color is in fact caused by red sediments and algae. This stunning natural landscape also provides the perfect background to take in the area’s population of rare flamingos.

另一個熱門景點是科羅拉達湖。這個世外桃源的鹽湖只有一公尺深,在蔚藍天空的襯托下,深紅的顏色創造出令人嘆為觀止的鮮明對比。雖然有些人宣稱這裡的水是眾神的血,但血紅的顏色事實上是紅色沉積物和藻類造成的。這令人驚嘆的自然景觀也提供完美的背景來欣賞該區稀有紅鶴的族群。
