Bolivia is a central South American country, with varied terrain from the Andes, the Atacama Desert and the rainforest in the Amazon basin. At more than 3,500 m above sea level, its administrative capital, La Paz, is located in the high plateau of the Andes with the snow-capped Illimani mountain in the background. Nearby is the crystalline Lake Titicaca, the largest on the continent, which extends along the border with Peru.
