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.

We paid the entrance fee for the mummies, although only my wife went to see it. The views are great but you dont need to drive all the way up the parking lot for the mummies, few meters up would do the work. Parking in fields down there with the llamas are more rewarding.

We stopped here as part of a tour for lunch. The village is very clean and traditional. It's cost us B$60 to visit but worth it. The scenery is mesmorising at the view point 400m up the hill. The mummies are freaky to look at! Enjoy!

I love the colors of this volcano. The friendly llamas, guanacos and birds, The old church. The crater of the volcano is out of this world.

We got here in the early morning when the sun just rose and shined over the tip of the mountain. It was breathtaking, with the tip of the mountain reflect against the sun creating the illumination of fire on top of the mountain.

The village of coqueza is by its base, I spent the nigth in this village and the next morning went to climb the volcano...but I went all the path on foot cause the tour operator dropped me at the hotel in coqueza and was to take me back to Salar only after 12:00 AM, so I had no car but... More

The only real reason people go to SW Bolivia is to see the Salar de Uyuni. If you are there anyway, this is a beautiful sight at various times of the day. Desolate and very distant from your everyday life, this is a real away from it all feeling.

What a fantastic stop on the Salar De Uyuni 3-day tour. The view is spectacular with plenty of rock formations to take an interesting picture perspective!

Climbing the volcano takes about 7-8 hours (5h to go up and 3h to go down) but it's definitely worth it: once you're at the top, you have an absolutely wonderful view on the salar. You can also visit a cave with some old mummies in it, that's pretty impressive too!
