"Beware of Sorrochi" Bolivia Favorite Tip by ummibrahim

Bolivia General: 99 reviews and 96 photos

Favorite thing: Nothing is more beautiful than landing in El Alto very early in the morning. Illampu is glistening from the sun and land glows a rich reddish brown. I love the air in this country. It is so pure and crisp. Try to drink some Tri-Mate or Coca tea as soon as you land. Sorrochi, altitude sickness, hits many people and these teas having a soothing effect.

Fondest memory: Bolivia has delicious food. Pehaps my favorite thing was to drink cafe con leche and eat a steak sandwich made by an indian woman on the street.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
