After breakfast, travelers will have the possibility of choosing between different activities. One of the options is to explore our camp’s surroundings, visiting the cactus forest and the old terrace farms. Another option is to visit the village of San Pedro de Quemes, a former Spanish settlement with panoramic views of the plateau and the salar.
We will continue our journey towards Las Dos Estrellas, also called The Cave of Galaxies, unusual geological formations that are kept safe by the human craniums of a former cemetery. Death, present everywhere, will connect us to the myths and stories of this part of the world as well as its culture and depth.
All of a sudden, 10,000 km2 of salt will appear in front of us: the Salar de Uyuni. Located 3,665 masl, it is the largest and highest salt pan on earth. Trying to understand its overwhelming immensity is a hopeless thought. We will have no choice but to accept our helplessness and simply appreciate its beauty and infinity.
With this idea in mind, we will explore the salar and its immensity. We will walk through some of its islands and grasp the scale if its seemingly eternal white, cloud-like salt flats. Only our bodies will break the chromatic harmony between the salt under our feet and the infinite sky above our heads.
We will have lunch before going on towards Tagua, a small village on the side of the salar where, down the Tunupa Volcano, we will find ourvthird camp.
