CHE GUEVARA ROUTE TPHE 05

Ernesto “Che” Guevara wanted to start a revolution in many countries in South America just like he did with Fidel in Cuba in 1959. The key, just like they did in Cuba, was to push country people in Bolivia to a revolt against first world countries. He failed on it because he did not have the backing of the Bolivian communist party. The ideas of “el Che” became the ideas of many people in later generations in South America. In Bolivia “el Che” still lives as a symbol of liberty for the students in many universities. In 1967 he and his companions were killed in Yuro and La Higuera by the Bolivian army; one of them was “Tania la guerrillera” (Laura Bauer); some others like the French Regis Debray were judged and punished with 30 years in jail.

We invite you to come to remember this unforgettable event of the Bolivian history where the scenery and the natural beauty are well worth the detour.
