Nice location, really lovely visit.

Good fun, the flamingos are pretty and the view of the salt flats is really beautiful. Worth the drive!

I often do that treck, from Jirira (east) or Coquesa (west). If you take the Coquesa way, you'll pass by a parking, where they keep a mummy from times former to the Incas. Nevertheless, my favorite way is from Jirira, as the path is a little bit longer and let you enjoy amazing views of the Uyuni salt flake, also... More

We booked a 4-day tour including one night in the village of Coqueza, a the base of volcano Tunupa. It was relly great for several reasons: - you get off the main tourist track as all of the 3-day tours doesn't go there - you spend the night right oon the edge of the salar so you can walk to...

I had a two-day hike with a guide from the village situated at the volcano base. We started from there in the morning and after a six-hour hike got to the camp at around 4300 meters.After about three hours, the slope gets somewhat steep, but there is a fair (albeit uneven) path all the way. Do not forget to bring... More

It will take you some 13 hours to climb to the top and return, but I would do it in two days the next time to have more time to enjoy the nature and views over the Salt Lake. You can get local guides at the village of Coqueza to take you up to over 5300 meters! If it is... More

I've visited the base of the volcano 3 or 4 different times. It is remote! But boy is it beautiful there. Plenty of great photo ops and it's cool to capture the flamingos against the white desert. If your tour will take you here, I would jump on the opportunity.

You can drive/hike a ways up the side of the volcano. I walked a bit near the base and imagine the long, rough hike far up the slope at this altitude would require a certain minimum level of fitness. Coming from the center of the salar, just outside the village you can see the flamingos in a small lake. The... More

Tunupa is visible from wide areas of the salar, but you need to get close-up to see the interesting colours of the crater. Like many other travelers, we stayed in Tahua, - not too far from the Coquesa mummies, so witnessed dusk and dawn on the volcano. Sunset was the most interesting because of the colour shifts to red. The... More

Beautiful vulcano, rising above the big Saltflat. Beautiful colours. Small laguna with some flamingo's at the food of the mountain.. Some quiet villages around, with lovely, old adobe churches. Interesting visit to the Coquesa mummies. Nice view at the Salar. Recommended.
