This mountain dominates the scenery as you cross the salt flats-uniformly flat as far as the eye can see with no vegetation or animals. Our tour took us close enough to it to appreciate the change in scenery, landscape and vegetation with crops and animals. A circle of volcanoes surrounds the salt desert and I believe we got to the middle[, Incahuasi island with small community and shop and rest rooms. We had a splendid first class picnic lunch on the salt, thankfully protected from the sun by a shade. Unforgettable.

A sacred mountain for the native inhabitants of Bolivia, it is a deity made a mountain, a very good place to visit in the Uyuni salt flat area. the trek to the top of the Colorado volcano does not have too many difficulties, apart from the altitude, beautiful colors and excellent views of the salt.

We had a day to visit Uyuni. It was an gorgeous ride riding across the salt flat, looks like something out of National Geographic’s. Beautiful colors especially with amazing clear sky’s. If you have a chance to visit here, make sure you make a visit.

Visited the north slopes of the volcano to the ancient civilization of Pucara Ayque, a pre-Columbian fort, which contained some skeletal remains and mummies in the caves. Evidence of how they sustained themselves with agriculture and herding llama.

You can climb up this volcano. We were content to look at it from the base after driving around with it over us for an hour or so. It was a slight detour from tour but worth the effort. Beautiful with wildlife all around. Even saw two pair of Sures, look like small ostriches.

We did a one day trip fro Uyuni , Bolivia. It was a beautiful ride across the salt flats . We visited a small museum at the little town at the base and then drove up to the level where you park and take a very easy hike to see the mummies . If one desires you can hike to the top . We used a private guide called Luis Fernando who was a perfect English speaking guide .

We were lucky enough to be booked with Crillion who I believe are one of the few agents who offer the opportunity to climb the mountain - in car and on foot if you want!

We reached 4956 metres after we got out and walked and the view and colours were just breathtaking.

I did want to hug the car (and driver!) as it was clearly labouring at that altitude but was plucky and kept on going as far as it could until the road ended.

The base had a big group of lamas grazing as well - added bonus!

Although the altitude made it difficult to climb, the views from this place are special!

Be prepared to experience something unique, bring some water and let yourself go to feel what fresh air feels like!

We stayed in Jirira for 3 days. There are many quinoa fields, and many wildlife. It is nice, though road is not paved, to drive through several villages in the area.

麓のヒリラに3泊滞在。キノア農地や多くの野生動物が見られる。舗装されていないが、地域の幾つかの村を抜けてドライブするのがいい。
