About Taypiplaya Lot #3

Taypiplaya is a small town and community in Caranavi formed by indigenous people from the Aymara culture. Its name is Aymara for “tiger’s corner.”

Taypiplaya surprises with its accessibility and its conservation potential. Occupying the space of a deep valley and flanked by high mountains, covered with a forest that is probably the most well-preserved in the area.

This community is located near the base of the Illimani (“where the sun rises” in Aymara) snow-capped mountain. With a height of 6,462 masl, this mountain is made up of 4 peaks and is the second highest mountain in the Bolivian Andes.

The snow from the Illimani mountain forms all the rivers and lagoons that provide water to the nearby towns, which is why its importance is vital for the survival of the Aymara communities and their crops, such as coffee.
This region has extreme climates that change in a matter of hours, from below zero to tropical with temperatures between 19 and 30 degrees Celsius.

Likewise, the vegetation also changes rapidly, from large plantations of potatoes and quinoa to many hectares of coffee, plantain, yucca and others. These and other peculiarities of the Andean terrain create the complexity and differentiation of the Bolivian coffee.
