On the Bolivian border, not far from Puno and famed Lake Titicaca, the “highest navigable body of water in the world,” is a unique conservation zone clinging with lush abandon to the Andes, as they plunge toward the thickly jungled Amazon Basin.

The star attraction is Peru’s Bahuaja Sonene National Park, connected by a network of public and private lands to Tambopata Natural Reserve, Peru’s most visited wildlife preserve. Madidi National Park and Pilon-Lajas Biosphere Reserve are both on the Bolivian side of the border. Together, they protect one of the most biodiverse hotspots on Earth, home to more than 1000 bird species, including the rare military macaw, blue-headed macaw, and Amazonian parakeet.
