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

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!

Very beautiful dormant volcano. Very scenic adventure. You will see flamingos and quinoa plants nearby. We did not do any climbing and we did not get to see the mummies but it was still a worthwhile trip. Be warned that the wind and sun can...More

I did the two day Salar tour and was fortunate enough to stay at the town of Coqueza at the bottom of this spectacular Volcano. The volcano is inactive, but I have to say it's the most beautiful volcano I've ever seen. At the bottom,...More
