  • I personally think that you should visit this place. The views of the volcano and salt well worth it. You must be in form for the small hike of rise that is not high nor hard, difficulty low to medium if it is not adapted to the height. The population has hostels, bathroom, showers, shop for the Basic. I went with my girl that is not accustomed to walking, so it cost him much and in the end we did not get in the end will be for the next, just had a great time at Salt Lake.
