Uyuni-Tahua (Tayka de Sal Hotel) (-/Bx/D)

Today we will have an unforgettable trip through 12.000 km² of fantastic landscapes of salt. Prepare your photo camera! The blinding white mantle of Salar de Uyuni resembles an immense glacier.

In winter (dry season, from May to November/December), when the surface hardens, geometric figures appear formed by the particles of salt amassed in polygons. In summer (rainy season, from December to March/April) the saline desert becomes a gigantic mirror auf water that melts into the purest sky in America.

We will enter the salt flat through Colchani, where the small family run salt factories are located. We will visit one of them, where we will receive an explanation about the economy of the salt that governs the town’s life based on a cooperative organization.

Next we will have the privilege of visiting Incahuasi Island that has an ascension path to its peak that turns into an extraordinary 360 degree viewpoint. This island surprises by the quantity of giant cactus (Echinopsis atacamensis) that populate the Island.

We will have a box lunch on the island and later we’ll go towards the dominant and magic figure of the Tunupa Volcano to whose foothills is located the village of Coquesa, from where the ascent will begin in our 4×4 to reach an appreciable height from where the views of the Monumental Salt Desert are impressive. A short walk takes us to see the¨chullpares¨ – rock graves, which are old burials sites of ancient mummies.

A neighboring village of Coquesa is Tahua, where we arrive to our hotel for the night. Accommodation in the Hotel Tayka de Sal, with private bathroom, hot water and heating (Bx, D).
