  • It is ideal to take pictures at sunset, the shades of colors are impressive. It is an attraction that is part of the tours to the salt.

  • We are raised by Jiria from 4WD up to 4,100 m. From there, we went to walk to the Mirador de Tunupa on 4,700 meters. The climb is exhausting, but if you have a good physical condition and is not a problem with the height, then well to create the hike. It is not difficult, it is only relatively steeply winding upwards. Just before the Mirador you can see 4 "stone peoples" and then you know you did it then there. The views of the volcano and in his vielfärbigen crater is breathtaking in terms of warsten! We were all overjoyed that we us have taken this walk in the program. It was one of the most beautiful experiences of our trip. A photo of the Mirador you have in my assessment, so that you can see how beautiful is the volcano. It turns around, you have a fantastic view of the Salar de Uyuni. A must for all slightly sportier tourists!
