Excursions
 


CAÑON DEL DUENDE
Walk out of the city past the bus station, continue south along the train tracks, pat a swimming pool, up the hill and out to the landfill, walk through the pillared gate and you're in the canyon.

 

VALLE DE MACHOS
6km to the south of the city, aptly named because of phallic formations. If you're there with a guide ask to see the Chichas Indian rock paintings.


PALALA
3km to the west of the city is the Quebrada de Palala. Huge fin-like rock formations in reds, violets and blues.


EL SILLAR
17km to the south - cathedral-like formations.


CAÑON DEL INCA
8km to the south - fin formations and a waterfall at the end. If you're there in mid-December you'll love the flame red cactus flowers.


SUIPACHA
25km from Tupiza. A historic battle during the war of independence was fought here and each 7 November both the Bolivian and Argentinean armies pay homage. This used to be a fortress belonging to the Chuquiagos, Tomatas and Charolas to protect them from onslaughts from the Chiriguanos and Moro-Moros.

3 GOOD REASONS
 ...to visit Tupiza
1) Get on a horse and pretend to be Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 
2) Elephant Hill, Goblin Canyon and the Devil's Door - maybe a good setting for the next Harry Potter film? 
3) Bike tours if you're scared of horses or too lazy to walk!
