Atacama & Uyuni
Desert & Altiplano, Chile - Bolivia
Chituca - Lodge Uyuni
Trayecto Overland Salar
- 3,2 km / 2 mi
Before heading to Uyuni, we hike up the hills to get a broader view of the surroundings, of the vegetation and of quinoa crops.
We make a stop at San Pedro de Quemes, a village with a marked division between rundown rock buildings and a new area. We then head to Las Galaxias, a grotto with peculiar formations resulting from the emptying of the Uyuni Salt Flat.
We have lunch in the middle of the Uyuni Salt Flat. We walk along one of the islands in the salt flat, the Pescado Island, a formation with typical Altiplano vegetation which we climb in the middle of the Uyuni Salt Flat to admire its immensity.
* If it is not possible to cross the salt flat due to weather conditions, an alternative route will be chosen.
