Caverna de Umajalanta is one of Torotoro’s most popular tours. And rightly so. With a landscape as dramatic as Torotoro National Park, it would be a miracle if there weren’t caves to explore. The biggest and best one is seen on the Caverna de Umajalanta tour: a series of underground tunnels and caves stretching for kilometres. Grab your headlamp and your scruffiest clothes – this is a cracking and full-on half-day tour in Torotoro National Park.
A tour of La Ciudad de Itas in Toro Toro requires a wild drive out to the north of the National Park on dusty, swirling roads. Since you’re in Bolivia, there’s a fair chance the van will break down. The roads are bumpy. You’ll gasp for oxygen at 3,800, but the views, sights and incredible natural formations make this a brilliant half-day tour.
El Vergel, a memorable waterfall deep in Bolivia, is a highlight of any visit to Torotoro National Park. On this half-day tour, you’ll see far more than just the picturesque El Vergel waterfall.
After the magnificent miradors you’ll drop down to the pools for a swim – it’s a refreshing dip after a hike in the high Bolivian heat. But don’t forget the 900-step walk back up!
To reach Torotoro National Park, Bolivia, you first need to decide whether it’s worth braving the minivan journey (for now) from Cochabamba. It’s certainly a diversion, regardless of the Bolivia itinerary you’re working on, but Torotoro is worth your time.
The closest city, Cochabamba, isn’t often visited and there’s not exactly a plethora of information but we promise you: Torotoro National Park is absolutely worth the hassle. Read more “WIT: Torotoro Bolivia – Why You Need to Visit Now”
