  • During the tour in Uyuni Salt Lake stopped up close. At the foot of vicuna and llamas and flamingos and watch local nature. Caution is required when there is fragile and becomes a prisoner walking.

  • The view of this volcano with its different colors is impressive and wonderful. Contrasts of form striking with the whiteness of the salt. In his around is can see them ways of life and culture of its people.

  • When I was there the Lake was partially frozen, I was tired from the trip that has already lasted two days inside a jeep tight so I didn't take a lot of the ride. The cold was so intense that I didn't risk getting out of the car, the wind worsened even more low thermal sensation. So, if you want to explore more of this attraction avoid making the ride in the winter, it was not a pleasant experience for me. Nevertheless, I liked the fact that I have known of near the volcano. The landscapes are stunning.
