More high-altitude exploring, this time on the Bolivian altiplano, where John looks at life in some of the Andes’ most isolated villages. From dazzling salt pans near the Chilean border he joined a llama caravan to a market town where salt has been bartered since Inca times. En route he discovered dinosaur tracks, and unearthed some fresh evidence about the final days – 100 years ago in November 2008 – of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

“A standard so high that it will be very difficult to follow.”
(Rotary Club of Bishop’s Waltham, Hampshire)
