Almost in the very south of Bolivia you will find the small town of Tupiza (2,970 m above sea level), which is the center of an interesting area nicknamed the Wild West of Bolivia. Here you will find beautiful red-colored rocks, wild canyons and large cacti. An ideal starting point for a number of nice hiking tours or horseback riding

Tupiza - Plaza Independencia

The center of Tupiza is a square and park in one of the Plaza Independencia. Here you will also find the most important monument of the city – the Cathedral. Through some streets you can see the local rock formations.

Heart of Jesus

The viewpoint just north of the city center is a little desolate Corazón de Jesús. However, the view of the surrounding rocks is very nice

If you want not only to have Tupiza in the palm of your hand, cross the river over the bridge, walk to the eastern suburbs of Tupiza and climb Cerro Jurcuma (3,130 m above sea level).
