The official capital of Bolivia is the city of Sucre, which is the seat of its judicial system. However, the administrative capital is the larger city of La Paz, located high in the mountains.
Although La Paz’s population is technically lower than another city, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, the greater metropolitan area of La Paz contains more people than anywhere else in Bolivia, with more than two million residents.

Sports and natureWe will leave Cochabamba in the early morging to travel by private transport up to the mountain pass of Colomi which is close to the community of the Wakanqui. Here our bike tour begins. After the first part downhill we will pass the village of Aguirre – Kotani (ancient path to the Chapare), the Yana Ghagha mountain lake, to ascend up to the mountain pass of Incachaca (quechua meaning: bridge of the Inca). From now on we will start to descend to the semi – tropical zone of the Chapare. On our way we will pass through dense fog patches, forests with a wide range of flora as various types of orchids, bromeliads, and giant ferns. The fauna over here is being characterized by the Andean bear, foxes, innumerable range of butterflies and other wild animals that sometimes can be seen. Arriving at Incachaca we will see an incomparable beauty of nature with semi- subterranean waterfalls, natural schwimming wholes of crystal clear water, and an over 60 metres deep gorge.

Culture and historyBolivia is a country in South America, bordered by Brazil to the north and east, Paraguay and Argentina to the south, Chile to the southwest, and Peru to the west. It has a Native American population which has mixed Spanish cultural elements with their ancestors' traditions. The Spanish-speaking population mainly follows Western customs. The cultural development of what is now Bolivia is divided into three distinct periods: pre-Columbian, colonial, and republican. Important archaeological ruins, gold and silver ornaments, stone monuments, ceramics, and weavings remain from several important pre-Columbian cultures. Major ruins include Tiwanaku, Samaipata, Inkallaqta and Iskanwaya. The country abounds in other sites that are difficult to reach and hardly explored by archaeologists. The Spanish brought their own tradition of religious art which, in the hands of local indigenous and mestizo builders and artisans, developed into a rich and distinctive style of architecture, literature, and sculpture known as "Mestizo Baroque." The colonial period produced not only the paintings of Perez de Holguin, Flores, Bitti, and others, but also the works of skilled but unknown stonecutters, woodcarvers, goldsmiths, and silversmiths. An important body of native baroque religious music of the colonial period was recovered in recent years and has been performed internationally to wide acclaim since 1994. Bolivian artists of stature in the 20th century include, among others, Guzman de Rojas, Arturo Borda, María Luisa Pacheco, Master William Vega, Alfredo Da Silva, and Marina Núñez del Prado.
