This is off the beaten track in the north part of the salt flats - not part of 95+% of the tours - but I highly recommend it! We started the hike at 7AM - we were told by our guides that we could make...More

This volcano is located in the northern part of the salt flats called salar sensual. Not all tours include this area. We didn't climb up, just enjoyed the beautiful views of the volcano and the salt flats from a view point. There was some amount...More

Took a tour there. Village has domesticated llamas and you can see quinoa plants. Pools of water on salt make mirror effect. Flamingoes.

This volcano is gorgeous - a huge dramatic crater and beautiful, multi-coloured sides to the mountain. Take it all in whilst visiting the Salar de Uyuni. Then pop along to the cave and see the petrified mummies, hundreds of years old. A bit macabre but...More

This was another picturesque stop on our tour around the salt flats. We loved seeing the llamas grazing, various birds and the different colours in the rock formations around the mountains and volcano. We did a bit of walking around but it was mostly a...More

You can watch flamingoes and other wildlife from this place. Take a little picnic but be mindful to carry back the rubbish as some of the areas is becoming full of plastic litter. There is a small museum worth visiting and you can walk around...More

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!

2 days at Uyuni and which Tour to choose? (5 Replies)
It seems these options are available for Uyuni tours. After Day 1 tour, I need to return to Colchani for staying hotel, and then take a journey for Day 2 tour. Considering coming back to Colchani after Day 1 trip, what would be better options to choose? I am leaning toward to Option 2 (because of reflections in the water) and Option 3 (because of Laguna). Please let me know if you have recommendations. Option 1) - Visit Train Cemetery - Visit the population of Colchani - micro...More

Option 2 (crazy photos in the salt flats) will only happen at certain times of the year. If you are travelling after the rainy season (post February-March), then you will be able to make the most of Option 2. The lakes are amazing and flamingos are in huge numbers for sure. Long story short, you can do both crazy photos and visit the lakes provided you know when you are travelling. Having said that, remember if you are after getting those photos, you are limiting yourself by not being able to...More

Hi We are leaving for SPA, a 2 night horseback riding and camping excursion, and then a 5 day trip to Uyuni and Tunupa volcano next week. Should we bring real winter clothing, such as a big duvet jacket? or should layers be enough? Thanks

It will be cold. It might depend on how you cope with cold, and how good your sleeping bags are.
