  • A long and tiring day of Tour to the Salar de Surire and the baths of Polloquere, but it was worth every minute, because the Orihul Guide was simply top-notch. Were 11 hours between leaving the Terrace Lodge & Tours, and the arrival. A logo and beautiful tour of the exotic setting, would also say that the hostile environment, because at this altitude of over 4500 metres, with thin air, the use of sunscreen is essential because they are extensive areas without almost air pollution. The route is full of bofedais, which are fertile, soggy areas where animals and birds feed on. The most frequent are the Vicunas, Alpacas, llamas, and the Viscayas a species of large rodent. Many birds like the three types of Flamingos, Andean Geese, Ducks, Gulls and Andean birds. The Salar, part of it is "privatized", but the surprise was on account of the baths of Polloquere, one of the tips edge of Salar, the open, rustic, sulphurous water completely, and the guide said to be medicinal waters. It was quite an experience, because while in the Middle out was about three degrees Celsius, the water was around 27 degrees. I got the perfume of "sulfur" which is equal to sulphur, for about three days, but I felt great after this "dip" in the baths of Polloquere. In the back, past the village of Guallatiri, with the chapel also closed, and without a soul, circling. The name of the village due to the active volcano, Guallatiri village near Although exhausting, was an excellent ride.

  • If like us, you have the chance to discover this place by being alone in the world, you enjoy it more this jewel. There are many animals that inhabit this Salar (Nandu, vicuñas, llamas, guanacos, viscaches, flamingoes etc...) In addition there are of aguas calientes to bask warm while contemplating these landscapes. It's easy to get there alone with a rental car. A definite must!
