Day 1

Depart from Cochabamba

After meeting up with your guide in the morning we will leave early from Cochabamba in our private 4x4 vehicle. Our journey will wind through a series of changing landscapes and you will witness the diversity of Bolivia as the scenery passes by your window. There will be chances to stop and take photos along route. Once we arrive in Toro Toro we will check into our chosen hotel and then pay a visit to Umajalanta - the deepest cave in Bolivia.To get there we will embark on a pleasant hike and along the way we will see the first dinosuar footprints of our tour. Much of this cave remains unexplored (only some 7km have been explored so far) and we will be entering with our torch and helmet into just a small percentage of this collossal formation. Inside we can see stalactites and stalagmites plus see blind fishes that live inside. We will have evening meal and stay the night in our hotel.

Day 2

Ciudad Itas and Dinosaur Footprints

After breakfast in our hotel we will set off in our 4x4 into the mountainous countryside until we arrive at a place called Ciudad Itas. This is at an altitude of 4000m and we will see some interesting rock formations that have been created by water erosion over thousands of years. We will also see some rock paintings that are said to be over 2000 year old. This area offers us a unique viewpoint of the surrounding area and its canyons and ridges plus it is also home to king of Andean birds the condor which if we are lucky we will see.Later on this day we will visit the Carrera's pampas and here we will find many different kinds of dinosaur footprints. Our guide will show us the best preserved ones and give us information as to which dinosaur made it. There is plenty of time to ask questions and take photos.We will return to our hotel and have our evening meal there.

Day 3

Waterfall El Vergel and Titanosaurus Footprints

Today we will visit a natural theater and a bridge formed by nature plus also see the largest dinosaur footprints that have been found in the area made by a dinosaur called Titanosaurus which could grow over 36 meters long. We will then visit another viewpoint giving us breath taking views over the canyon. In this canyon lives families of the endangered red head macaw and it is sometimes possible to see them. From here we descend a stairway to the bottom of the canyon and the surrounding vegetation will become more lush as we arrive to a waterfall call "El Vergel". There is time to bath in the clear waters of the fall and relax amongst nature. Our last visit will be to see some more footprints located near the village of Toro Toro. There are hundreds to observe and they come from a variety of different dinosaurs. Before we head back to Cochabamba we will eat a traditional lunch from the region.
