Volcano
Test your physical limits with a rewarding hike up Tunupa Volcano, which features a crater roughly 5,300 m (17,000 ft) above sea level. The hike takes several hours but provides unbeatable views of the surrounding landscape and the red coloring of the volcano itself. If you really want to challenge yourself, hire a guide and try to reach the very summit of the volcano. At the base of the mountain you can visit a small village, ideal place to have lunch and meet the locals. Put Tunupa Volcano into our Uyuni trip generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
