AABS01     Salar de Uyuni (from Uyuni)        1 day 

boliviaUyuni

Starting from the town of Uyuni, we will take you along the impressive Salt Desert with our first visit to Colchani, a typical artisanal salt extracting village. Then we continue towards the Salar de Uyuni itself where we visit The Island Incahuasi, an interesting hilly outcrop in the middle of the salt desert. On this hill, grow giant cactus reaching altitudes of 7 meters and more. Lunch and after a short rest, we do an overland cross of the Salar de Uyuni in our way to visit the Galaxy Cave, an interesting geological formation. Nearby is located the Devils Cave where we will find some well-preserved old mummies. Our final visit will be to the Train Cemetery, located 3 km outside Uyuni and connected to it by the old train tracks. The rail construction started in 1888 and ended in 1892, and the mining companies mostly used the trains for the mining operations. In the 1940s, the mining industry collapsed and trains abandoned on the place where now we know as the train cemetery. Transport back to Uyuni.
