Photo of the Month: On A Golden Stage

The photos we share offer a glimpse at some of South America’s most unique destinations. This continent’s diversity never ceases to amaze us, but to actually experience it is when the real adventure begins.

Our top photo pick for November showcases the urban sprawl of La Paz amid the towering Bolivian peak of Illimani. At over 11,000 feet above sea level, La Paz is yet another city in South America that will leave your lungs gasping for oxygen.  Some travelers only plan a quick stop in La Paz in transit to some of the country’s other highlights, including Lake Titicaca and the Uyuni Salt Flats, but it’s definitely worthy of a longer exploration. For a cultural experience, navigate the street of La Paz to the Witches Market!

Here’s a look at some more from this month’s photo bank…
