4 Days - Torotoro National Park

Torotoro is Bolivias smallest National Park, however, full of interesting sites to explore – from hundreds of dinosaur footprints and ancient fossils to arid limestone canyons surrounded by a variety of special mountainous shapes and pre-Inca rock paintings. This is a lesser visited area but nonetheless a very fascinating tour worth taking.

  • Day 1: La Paz – Cochabamba – Torotoro National park

In the morning we fly to Cochabamba and leave for the Toro Toro National park (5 hours drive with 3 on a small bumby road) which is full of places to discover. If we have time we can visit the small village Tarata, famous for being the birthplace of two former Bolivian Presidents. About ½ an hour before we reach the park we visit the Cascada de Golondrinas where we can see dinosaur footprints and swim in a huge natural swimming pool with waterfalls. After dinner at the village the rest of the evening is free.

Day 2: Torotoro National Park

After breakfast we visit the Ciudad de Itas, a site with labyrinths and caves where we can also see rock paintings. We have lunch in the Ciudad de Niños and continue to the Umajalanta cave, considered the biggest cave in Bolivia. We enter some 300m/985ft into the cave past stalactites and stalagmites and we end our tour at an underground lake with blind fish and waterfalls. After this excursion we return to the village Torotoro for dinner.

Day 3: Torotoro National park

After breakfast we visit El Vergel, located about 3 ½ km from the village. During our tour we observe waterfalls, the “canyon prints” and natural cliff bridges. We arrive at El Vergel, also known as Waca Senqa, a waterfall with warm water emerging in the middle of the Torotoro canyon and we of course have time to swim – remember to bring your towel. After lunch we see the Chiflon Q’aqa caves with dinosaur footprints, cliff paintings and do some “canyoning”. After dinner the rest of the evening is free.

Day 4: Torotoro National park – Cochabamba – La Paz

After breakfast we have the option of two different visits. The first is the turtle cemetery, located some 3.5km/2.18mi from the village. Here we can observe fossils of chelonian reptiles like turtles, crocodiles, and also of fish. Our second option is “7 vueltas” which is one of the most important sites for fossil observation in Bolivia. It is an impressive geological and paleontological site with thousands of fossils from the Brachiopod and Cephalopod ages. After lunch we return to Cochabamba and fly back to La Paz.
