"El Altiplano" Oruro by chancay

Oruro Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 110 photos


Oruro is still one of the biggest towns of Bolivia, but only one time in the year a really touristic place. The carnaval of Oruro is the most famous one in Bolivia.

    Oruro seems like a place for me, since I like odd little places :-) The potato bag tip is one of the better, I suppose you meen you put the backpack into the potato bag to disguise it?

    Actually Oruro is a city, a small one. and the dirtiest place i have ever visited in my life, its like they dump the rubbish in the streets and let it blow about. the carnival of Oruro is good, but has nothing else going for it.
