The salar is a place of endless possibilities and you can experience the best of it during your stay with Kachi Lodge. During the rainy season, the salar turns into a thin lake where one can paddle, canoe out or simply enjoy a photographic session as clouds endlessly reflect on the surface of the water. At night, when the telescope is out, the sky seems to open up and pour stars above one’s head. On your way from Uyuni, you'll probably stop at the old train cemetery with its dozens of old locomotives and carriages dating back to early 20th century, then to Inca Huasi Island, covered with a forest of giant cacti.
Day 1 : Arrive in Uyuni Day 2 : Uyuni Salt Flats Day 3 : Return Home
Take a walk to encounter llama farmers amidst their herd
As guests, the portfolio of activities within an hour of the lodge is vast: it ranges from cultural and ethnic excursions to the ancient archaeological site and scared grounds of Alkaya – where ancient mommies can be seen - to high altitude hikes on the nearby Thunupa volcano (5321m), amidst ochre and red coloured earth. Breathtaking.
A daily visit to the quinoa fields or walk to encounter llama farmers amidst their herd are a unique way to understand the local culture - and the dedication needed to fight the extreme climate and make a living out of it.
Sunrise hikes followed by a breakfast at the tip on an island surrounded by giant cacti is a unique way to start the day while sunset drives to catch the last rays of light are spectacular every time, especially when comfortably installed with a glass of wine or cocktail prepared on the spot.
