  • We have a tour via Enquelga and Mauque as well as the small geysers made by Puchultsia and via route No. 15 back to Colchane. Pretty little church and (almost) deserted villages. Approx. 33 km before Colchane located right above the route 15 pretty erosion formations with small towers, caves, etc. There are links a Bay. The walk worthwhile. The Volcán Isluga is a great tour for mountain lovers. There is a marked path to the crater, about 1200 Höhenmter! Be careful on the crater rim because of toxic sulphur fumes.
