ITINERARY

Day 1

The tour of Uyuni Salt Flats, Deserts and Lagoons of Colors in dry season two days and one night begins in the following way.  According to the arrival time of our passengers, we will pick them up at the airport or bus terminal to go to Uyuni for breakfast.

 

Around 09:00 a.m. approximately we will start the tour in fully equipped 4X4 vehicles (6 passengers for vehicle). Our first visit will be the “Train Cemetery” (Cementerio de Trenes), nice place that is a testimony of better times in the country; then we continue to “Colchani”, a small town located on the edge of the “Uyuni Salt Flats”, where the salt production is the principal activity for the community members. There, we will see the process of salt production and we will visit the artisan museum shop, where there are giant pieces carved in salt and also other curiosities (jewels, tools and crafts).

 

After this visit, we will enter the famous “Uyuni Salt Flats”, the largest salt desert in the world (10,582 square kilometers, in area). The “Uyuni Salt Flats” has the peculiarity of having a reserve of 9 million tons of Lithium, that is, 40% of the world reserve. On our first stop we will observe water holes called “Salt eyes” (Ojos de Sal) – (outlets for subterranean rivers flowing under the Uyuni Salt Flats). We will stop at the “Hotel Playa Blanca”, the first hotel built on the “Uyuni Salt Flats” and the only construction on the saline crust. After visiting this singular attraction, we will enjoy a delicious lunch in the middle of the “Uyuni Salt Flats”. Then we will go to “Incahuasi Island” (Isla Incahuasi) also misnamed (Isla del Pescador), whose geomorphology is due to remains of petrified corals covered with giant cactus up to 12m in height. From its highest point, we will have an exceptional 360° view of the entire “Uyuni Salt Flats”. We will continue the trip with our afternoon of photography with perspective in the middle of the “Uyuni Salt Flats”.

 

Near the end of the afternoon we will move to a strategic point to enjoy an incredible “Sunset”. After this we will go to our refuge of salt on the edge of the “Uyuni Salt Flats” at the gates of the desert of “Sud Lípez” for our respective accommodation. Dinner and night at the refuge.

Day 2

The second day will starts with a breakfast. Then we will visit the “Cave of the Galaxies” (Cueva de las Galaxias) and the “Cave of the Chullpas” (Cueva de las Chullpas), and then we continue through the “Chiguana Salt Flats”, following the rail line owned by the FCA (Ferrocarriles Andinos). We will make a brief stop at “Volcano Viewpoint Ollague” (Mirador del Volcan Ollague), where we will see this active volcano.

 

We will enter to the “High Andean Jewels Route” (Ruta de las Joyas Alto Andinas) to admire the territory composed by “Cañapa, Hedionda, Chiar Khota, Honda and Ramaditas lagoons”-. We will visit the famous “Stone Tree” (Arbol de Piedra) (please do not try to climb it) rock carved by the wind and the years in the middle of the “Siloli Desert” (Desierto de Siloli).

 

Towards the end of the day we will enter the “National Reserve of Andean Fauna “Eduardo Avaroa” (REA) and we will visit the “Red Lagoon” (Laguna Colorada), whose name is due to the coloration produced by the Artemia, microscopic crustaceans that serve as food for the flamingos, which we will see in small colonies; (because of climate changes and high evaporation in the highland basin, water levels in the lagoons are rapidly decreasing, which has limited the population of flamingos year after year). We will rest in the refuge in Huayllajara and enjoy a dinner and hot drinks.

Day 3

After breakfast our trip continues on its third day, towards one of the points located to the south of Bolivia, ”Green Lagoon” (Laguna Verde) one of the most southerly places in Bolivia. On our way to the Green Lagoon we will enter to the heart of the “National Reserve “Eduardo Avaroa” (REA) and we will visit the “Geysers Sun of Tomorrow “(Geysers Sol de Mañana), that form an impressive geothermal site where several lava kettles and boiling minerals decorate the region with impressive steam clouds.

 

We will continue towards the “Polques Thermal Baths” (Aguas Termales de Polques), a pool of natural hot water where we can bathe. Afterwards, we will continue our journey along “Sud Lípez”.  During this trip, we will observe the “Desert Ladies Valley” (Damas del Desierto de Dali) formed by imposing rocks of several tons carved by the wind. Then we will cross the famous “Dalí Desert” (Desierto de Dali), which reminds us the art of the Catalan artist due to the fantastic shapes and colors of this landscape.

 

Then, we will continue towards the “Green Lagoon” (Laguna Verde) at the foot of the “Licancahur Volcano” (Volcan Licancabur), where we will take some photos. The emerald green color of “Green Lagoon” (Laguna Verde) is due to the strong concentration of lead carbon; sulfur arsenic and calcium (please don’t trying to bathe in it!). From “Green Lagoon” (Laguna Verde) we will return to “Uyuni”. We will cross the town of “Villamar”, lost place in the middle of the huge desert of the Lípez, before crossing the largest mining project in Bolivian history “San Cristóbal”.

 

Around 07:00 p.m. approximately we will arrival to “Uyuni” for its corresponding transfer to the airport or terminal of buses or to the point defined by the passengers.
