Bolivia weather overview

Bolivia is a large landlocked country twice the size of France, and is a land of two climates. In its west, the great peaks of the Andes soar up to 6,000m (20,000ft) and even the plateau which lies between the eastern and western ranges of these mighty mountains stands between 3,000m (10,000ft) and 4,000m (13,000ft) high. However, as you move east of the Andes, the land descends dramatically into the rainforests of the Amazon Basin and to lowlands further south.

The lowlands have a hot, steamy tropical climate with a single, heavy rainy season from November to February when temperatures are highest. In the mountains, it's a different story: temperatures drop lower the higher up you go. The northeast slopes of the Andes are semi-tropical but, on higher ground, night time temperatures can be extremely cold and frosts are frequent during the dry season.

The high peaks are permanently snow-capped. On the plateau between the high mountains, rainfall is low and occurs mainly from December to March. The two main hazards you'll encounter here are altitude sickness and sunburn: the air is very thin in the mountains so you should be prepared to acclimatise slowly.
