Itinerary

Discover the Salar

On this first day of Bolivia Salar tour, visit the train cemetery in the morning;  where ancient rusting trains lay to rest.
Afterwards, continue to Colchani and witness the processing of the salt before arriving at the salt flats themselves and see the “Ojos de Sal” where water bubbles up through the salt plains. You’ll see salt mounds ready for transportation, the original salt hotel (not used for guests anymore) and visit Isla Inca Huasi (Fish Island) to see giant cacti and have great views of the salt flats all around. Before moving to  Pia Pia Island, you’ll have plenty of time to take amazing photos of the sunset before heading to the salt hotel in the village of Ajencha for dinner and overnight stay.

Lagoons and Volcanoes

First, prepare for the day after a hearty breakfast. Your first stop will be in the tiny Chiguana desert in the southern portion of Salt Flats. This desert is surrounded by volcanoes, among them is the famous Ollague Volcano (5840 m or  19,160 ft) which stands out in the landscape. Then, drive further south and visit some Andean lagoons where various species of flamingos flock.

Today at about 5 am, you’ll  have an early start to visit the geysers “Sol de Mañana” and see the bubbling mud pools.
Then, proceed to the hot springs where you can relax in the hot water pools and  have breakfast as well.
After this pleasure interval, proceed to see “Laguna Verde” where the blue mineral waters of the lake at Volcan Licancabur’s foot radiate.
