Uyuni - Two Days

Day 1

1. Depart from Uyuni for the Train Cemetery 10:30 am .

- The train cemetery is just outside Uyuni (approx 2 kilometers), and it´s great for photos, especially interesting with a clear blue sky or in Black and White. Estimated visit of 25 minutes.

2. Colchani (salt processing village)ojosdelsalar

- 23 kms from Uyuni, it´s here that the local families process the salt by drying, grounding and adding iodine. Also a great place for a souveneir, maybe a salt Lama?

3. Montones de Sal (Salt Mounds)

- This is where we first stop on the Salar itself. Locals scrape the salt into mounds in the first drying period. Then they are shoveled into antique trucks back to Colchani for processing.

4. Ojos del Salar (Eyes of Water)

- Water bubbles up to the surface of the salt, very rich in minerals.

5. Inkawasi Island (quechua for inca´s house)

- This stunning island in the middle of the white sea is home to tall cacti, some over a 1000 years old! We stop here for lunch (Provided) and time to explore the island and take photos of the amazing 360 degree views of the Salar from the top of the island. Entrance is 30 bs, this includes use of the toilet.

6. Middle of the Salar for the Sunset!

We head towards our accommodation, but stop on route to watch the sun set over the Salar de Uyuni. Absolutely breathtaking.

7. Sleep in the Volcano Tunupa ( dinner ).

Day 2

8. Tunupa and ancient mummies.

- Day 2 is here, a majestic drive across the Salar takes us to the base of teh incredible Tunupa Volcano. Tunupa sits proudly watching over the Salar. First stop is to view the mummies, a short hike from where the jeeps drop us off. Legend says that the Chullpas (mummies) are from the time before the sun was created! Next stretch our legs and head higher for an even more amazing view of the Salar. We start at 4200 meters and climb to 4500 meters. Here is a great viewpoint of the creator of the Salar, the extinct Tunupa.

- We lunch in Coquesa, at the base of Tunupa, and have some time to photograph the local Llamas and Flamingos.

9. Salt Hotel.

- The hotel is entirely made out of salt in the middle of the Salar. It was condemned for environmental reasons as a hotel but remains now as a museum. for visitors. They expect that you purchase something small (snacks, etc.) inside in exchange for looking around. (The toilet costs 5bs here!)

10. Return to Uyuni.

- The price of the tour is 70$.

- Included 3 meals a day (excluding breakfast day 1, and dinner on the last day).
