ITINERARY

Day 1

The tour of Uyuni Salt Flats 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 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”. After this we will enjoy an 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 lodging for our respective accommodation. Dinner and night at the lodging.

Day 2

The second day will start with a breakfast. Then we continue towards the miner town of “San Cristóbal”. Later we will cross the “Valley of the Rocks” (Valle de las Rocas), on our way to the town of “Villamar”. After visiting this village located in the middle of the desert,  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 continue our trip in “National Reserve of Andean Fauna Eduardo Avaroa” (REA), where 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). Finally, we will enter 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”).

 

After this visit we return to “Uyuni” to arrive around 06:30 p.m. approximately, for its corresponding transfer to the airport or bus terminal or point defined by the passengers.
