The views from the area (no need to go to the top of the volcano!) are mindblowing!! The scenery is beautiful there are a few mummies in a cave relatively easy to visit (entrance is a bit narrow). Tunupa Volcano area worth a visit!

On this trip we took a road that goes to the Salar from the back side of the Mountain, entering the salar at Tahua. The view of the mountain from that side changes drastically and it shows you many different faces, each more beautiful than...More

I did the two day Salar tour and was fortunate enough to stay at the town of Coqueza at the bottom of this spectacular Volcano. The volcano is inactive, but I have to say it's the most beautiful volcano I've ever seen. At the bottom,...More

One of the places you go to while on the Salt Lake tour... This is where we had our lunch & it sure is a good place for that... Good shade, nice air, quiet... The volcano itself is not exactly jaw dropping...

Siting on the edge of the vast salt flats it rises to a multi-colored collapsed caldera. You can drive up to a viewpoint about half way up and then a short hike takes you to a cave where there are 3,000 year old mummified skeletons.
