    With my colleagues, we decided to make a tour through the high Valley. We begin by enjoying the road in the bus hired by our account. We start from the population of Colcapirhua and we were picking up the integrates of the delegation along the way. Coming out Av. oil company, we take the old road to Tarata by km. 21, old road to Santa Cruz. We arrived in Tarata, and our first impulse was to visit the temple and convent which also has a small museum. In addition to displaying ancient artifacts, there are paintings and religious images from the colony. Then we visited the home of former President Mariano Melgarejo, in conservation work, which is not a Palace, but rather a little humble because it was the natural son of a poor, single woman. Later, we went to a place close to the famous bridge of Melgarejo, who made build that infrastructure to pass his horse and not to wet feet in the river that existed there. We serve the famous taratenos Creole sausage with salad vegetables, peeled wheat mote and a round of chicha. Then we launched towards Cliza to try rich chicks and ducks serving there. or bad luck not could serve these delights because the squab was particularly expensive. We therefore went to Punata, there we find a fair of fruit and ornamental plants of all kinds, we bought the famous punatenos rosquetes and traditional pies. Also we serve fruit drinks and various seeds. The very bandits of my colleagues went to munir some punatena chicha so famous throughout the country. Finally decided to go to Arani, passing through Ucurena, where the first in 1952 agrarian reform and where there is a monument was signed. Arani, managed to visit the temple dque is splendid but that was about to close it as the pastor attends masses from very early in the morning and closes as at 12:30. Finally, in the track's turn, we stop in a sector of bakeries in the famous bread of Arani, which is whole wheat flour, corn bread and the famous pilipatas (duck feet) or also called biscuits. Finally, we stop at a local offering Tarpon on the grill, delicious, and gave concluded our tour taking our return at 4 in the afternoon approximately. Obviously, the high Valley is much larger. There are other populations with products of its own that organized fairs throughout the year depending on the season. Recommendations for travellers, wear hats or umbrellas to protect themselves from the Sun, predict the weather, rain, wind, there is a lot of land since it is a rural area and there is little asphalt. Mobility must be in excellent condition having water, fuel and tires of relief just in case. Have national currency in cash and simple cuts and if they are foreigners having a driver's confidence who know the place; If you go by public transport, take care of the descuidistas as the world abound on stops especially at fairs.

Where to stay in Cochabamba

You can find dozens of inexpensive hotels and budget-friendly hostels between the main bus terminal and the city center in Cochabamba. The only drawback to staying in that area is that some of its side streets can be unsafe late at night, so choose carefully if you plan to go out after dark. Most foreign visitors choose to stay at one of the hotels near the main city square, where you can take advantage of good eating options that are relatively difficult to find elsewhere in town.
