Last weekend I took a little trip to a National park of Bolivia named Toro Toro together with Joel, an australian friend from work. We stayed in the village of Toro Toro, which is this small place in the mountains about 5 hours from Cochabamba with micro (a mini bus). You pay 35bs one way and then it leaves when ever the micro is full (usually around 12 ppl.).
Once there, we went on our first excursion, It was just an incredibly beautiful experience since we went from this typical dry landscape on to a deep green tropical scenery within just a few km. First we passed quite a few dinosaur tracks, really cool to see and quite unreal to comprehend that giant dinosaurs have walked on the very spot that we were standing but 150 million years ago.. Makes you feel very small ;).
Continuing, we hiked to this great canyon, about 300m deep according to our guide, giving us a breathtaking view. We climbed down to the very bottom of the canyon too, discovering a clear-blue lagoon with one of the most lovliest waterfalls my eyes have ever spotted. Being both tired and sweaty from the hike, and super exited to swim in the beufiful water, there was no doubt to jump in !
Day 2 we climbed in one of the biggest caves in Bolivia called Umajalanta! It was a real challenge sine you had to both climb, crawl and jump to get through the cave. Continuing our adventure, we visited this acient site in the mountains called The city of rocks, ~3000m above sea level (ofc making me super tired), where it’s believed that the Inca population lived. Amazing scenery from up there of course!
