Day Two: Touch the sky at the Uyuni Salt Flat

Salar de Uyuni trips After a good night’s rest, your adventure will start as you journey toward the city of Uyuni, visiting the biggest Salt Flat in the world. Your first stop will be visiting the Train Cemetery, where you can see abandoned engines and hollowed out rail cars that have been stripped back to their skeleton frames. Once making up a part of the railway lines that connected Uyuni and Antofagasta (now Chilean territory), the trains transported minerals like tin, silver and even gold. When Bolivia lost its coastline to Chile 1904, access to the Pacific Ocean was lost, meaning that its railway line was affected enormously. A visit to the ‘train cemetery’ is one of the most interesting options for the passionate traveler who enjoys seeing the remains of recent historical changes.   You will be visiting the small town of Colchani, where you can learn more about Uyuni’s mining past and its current artisanal salt production. Entering the amazing Uyuni Salt Flat, you will visit the Museo de Sal and if the season is right (December to March) you will be able to see fantastic optical illusions, visiting the “Ojos de Agua” (eyes of water), salt eruptions, learning about the development of this huge salt lake.   At noon, you will reach Incahuasi Island in the middle of the Salt Flat. Take in calcareous rocks, large populations of cactus, local fauna and spectacular 360-degree panoramic views of the Salt Flat from the summit of this outcrop of land. Continuing north of the salt flat, we’ll visit a local museum, the home of pre-Columbian mummies. Spend a night sleeping in the Salt Hotel called Tayka De Sal. This unique hotel, the very best of its kind in the Salt Flats, is located at 3,700m.a.s.l, at the foot of the Thunupa Volcano. With every possible facility needed so you can enjoy a pleasant night, enjoy heating, a private bathroom and hot water to ensure a comfortable night’s stay. Overnight Tayka de Sal Hotel

Siloli desert in Uyuni trip Leaving the Salt Flat behind, you will travel along the volcanic mountain range with its eternal snow en route to Lípez.

Your eyes will be delighted by the great richness offered by the Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve, distinguishing itself with vast, cold deserts and salty lakes that come from the reserve’s glaciers, wetlands and bogs. One special tourist attraction are the huge flamingo nesting colonies, graceful and serene in their huge numbers.
