If you requiere to finish the tour at the city of San Pedro de Atacama (Chile) we can arrange a private transportation from the Bolivian - Chilean border of Hito Cajón to SPA, the ride takes 1 hour.
We begin the tour at 10 am approximately from the meeting point. Our first visit will be the Train Cemetery (also called
Train Graveyard), it is possible to observe a great number of antique steam locomotives and rail wagons of the early railroad days, built mainly in France and England. Then we arrive to Colchani whose residents extract the salt using rudimentary tools.
Now we are inside the magnificent Salar de Uyuni, on our way we will observe the “Ojos de Agua” (Water Eyes), are holes on the surface of the salt plain, inside which the brine (salt saturated water) located under the superficial crust bubbles up. Arrival at the Playa Blanca Hotel which is built of salt blocks, the general construction is very rustic and since it’s settled in the middle of the Salar it has a unique attractiveness.
We will drive towards Incahuasi Island located 102 Km. from Uyuni village. It stands in the center of the salt flat, and it is the highlight of today’s trip due to the stunning flora and fauna unique in the world, we will make a short hike to the top of the island to enjoy the wonderful landscape. Then we will have some time at the Salar de Uyuni to take beautiful pictures and if you want some funny ones too.
Later we continue our trip driving north towards the hotel to enjoy the natural spectacle of colors of the sunset. We will overnight in Tambo Coquesa Hotel, located in the town of the same name.
