This place is incredible. My wife and I went to Tara's Salt flat on July and, believe or not, there was snow there!!! We lived an adventure going to the Salt flat because a snowstorm that has been formed just in the moment we arrived there, an unusual happening even on winter according to our guide.

We did the afternoon tour which ends with a sunset reflected on one of the lakes. The tour was pleasant, but not spectacular. I really hope the USD35 entry fee (ages 12 and up) is applied to park upkeep and preservation as a profit-motive cannot be justified.

You can feel like you are on another planet in this unusual landscape. Led by a guide whose knowledge of the area was terrific was another reason to visit and learn something new.

This was probably one of the most dramatic environments in the area and you pass 4800 meters traveling so make sure you do this towards the end of the stay when you have had a chance to get more used to the altitude. it is a 3 hr drive each way and not much walking time- i would recommend if...

It was worth the long drive to see this landscape. There was a bit of 4WD bumping and at the altitiude you need to be properly rugged up when walking around outside the vehicle.

Two hours of driving each way in a large van with 12 other people. It was great to see the sights, but the experience would be a lot nicer in a smaller tour group. Unfortunately for us the sights were diminished by the bitter cold and uncomfortable journey. The driver was friendly, but was falling asleep while driving on the... More
