Torotoro National Park is characterized for having exuberant beauty on its mountains, deep canyons, valleys and waterfalls, and it became the paradise for the lovers of paleontology.

Between 7:30 and 8:00 am our vehicle will be waiting for you at your hotel to start our journey toward Torotoro which is 6 hours from the city of Cochabamba through dirt roads. We arrive in Torotoro for lunch. In the afternoon, we register at the office in Torotoro National Park and we get ready to go visit Umajalanta Cave where you will see stalactites, stalagmites and blind fish. Then we return to the hotel.

Day 2: TOROTORO CANYON–EL VERGEL WATERFALLS

After breakfast, we start our visit by going on foot to Cerro de Wayllas where there are hundreds of traces of various species of dinosaurs. We will do a 7-km hike approximately, bordering the Canyon of Torotoro. On the way, we will see dinosaur footprints and very attractive rock formations. We make a short stopover at Mirador Colgante (lookout) from where we can see red-front macaws. As we take a rest, we also enjoy a tasty snack looking at El Vergel waterfalls. There we can also enjoy a refreshing bath in crystal clear waters.

Day 3: CITY OF ITAS – COCHABAMBA

After breakfast, we start our journey to the city of Itas where you will see a series of rock formations nearly at 4,000 meters above sea level. This "city" has mazes and rock galleries that form a sort of gothic city, nestled in a mountainous area of sedimentary rocks. There, the caverns are joined to each other by narrow corridors, stone bridges and it is possible to find some cave paintings. After lunch, we go back to Cochabamba where we arrive around 8:30 pm.
