The town of Tupiza in southern Bolivia is served by the legendary Oruro - Villazon train which calls at the most inconvenient time at around 04:00 in the morning. The train station is small and closes immediately after serving the train. Fortunately lodgings are easy to find within a stone's throw away and being a small relatively unspoilt town it is safe to walk even during the early hours in the morning.
Situated between several escarpments with colourul sediments and strange rock formations, the town is a tourist attraction on its own right beside being an alternative starting point to visit the Altiplano and the famed Uyuni Salt Flats.
It is rumoured that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were killed and buried nearby after their last heist
