Kachi Lodge Experience

3 Days FROM AUD 3,139

Overview

The Uyuni Salt Flats are Bolivia’s answer to the moon; a magical landscape which defies all perspective. This three day, two night all-inclusive experience at the super-deluxe Kachi Lodge allows you to sleep directly on the salt flats in the comfort of a beautiful dome. Like a boutique hotel room, each one has a private bathroom, cosy heating and plush bedding atop a centrally located bed which has direct views of the ethereal salt flats. A communal dome, furnished with oversized cushions and vibrant Moroccan lanterns, is where exquisite cuisine is served by multi award winning restaurant in La Paz, Gutsu. Tessellated windows allow unrivalled stargazing by night and day time activities include trekking to Tunupa volcano crater, mountain biking and visiting local villages.

Trip Code: BOMAKLE

ITINERARY INSPIRATION

On arrival at Uyuni Airport, you will be met and transferred to Kachi Lodge located approximately 1 hour by car. Kachi Lodge is a luxury dome camp located on the Uyuni Salt Flats, at an altitude of 3,600m at the foot of Tunupa Volcano.

Remainder of the day is at leisure. Dinner included this evening.

Uyuni - Salt Flats

There are many activity options to make the best out of your experience on the Salt Flats.

The one not to be missed is a hike in the morning to nearby island covered with giant cactus and offering amazing views on the Salt Flat. An afternoon option is a visit to the charming village of Coquesa and its mummies sheltered in a cave 600mts over the village, again with beautiful views on the Salt Flats.

At about an hour drive away lies the interesting archaeological site of Alcaya, an old pre-colombian city near Salinas.

Enjoy an active hike to the lower lip of Tunupa volcano crater.

During the wet season, when the level of water allows it, enjoy a stand up paddle ride on the flooded Salar.

Staying more "local" you can also borrow one of the mountain bikes and experience the flatness of the Salar around the camp.

At night, a telescope is at your disposal to observe the starry night of the Altiplano.

Salt Flats

This morning after breakfast, you will be transferred back to Uyuni for your onward travels.

SPEAK TO A SPECIALIST

Sustainability

Being environmentally accountable is a crucial part of our organisation. Chimu is currently striving towards using less paper, taking several initiatives to do so and tracking our progress along the way. Our goal: A paperless organisation. For this reason, all information given to you will be sent electronically. We encourage those who choose to travel with us to support our aspirations and actions and ask that you reconsider printing out documentation. To view these documents, you can download them to your iPad or portable computer before and during your trip.

Chimu is passionate and dedicated to sustainability measures and understands the crucial part sustainability plays within the tourism industry.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. Whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, locally produced meals or the transport on tour, we do not use imported goods when local products are available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in.

While visiting the many national parks, heritage sites, museums and landmarks our travellers are encouraged to explore remain culturally aware and sensitive. We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
