Altiplano Farmland

This gallery is really a collection of photos taken on the altiplano between La Paz and Lake Titicaca. The farmland title reflects the fact that much of this area is fertile and supports an amount of agriculture that we were surprised to see at such a high altitude of around 4000m (13000ft). We had expected something fairly hostile and barren rather than a benign arable faming landscape that was in places reminiscent of Borders Region in Scotland.
