day 11: Between volcanoes, geysers and deserts
Today, discovery of the treasures of South Lipez.
You will start with the Salar de Chalviri, populated by pink flamingos and ducks, under the benevolent gaze of the Licancabur volcano (5960 m). You will also cross the Dali desert, known for its gigantic stones with strange shapes.
Then you will visit the Laguna Verde, which owes the colour of its waters to the high concentration of lead carbonate, sulphur, arsenic and calcium, a colour that changes according to the winds.
The view of the Licancabur volcano is breathtaking.
A stop at the Polques Thermal Baths to enjoy the thermal baths, with mineral-rich water at a temperature of around 30ºC.
You will then reach the geysers of Sol de Mañana. Located at more than 4850 m above sea level, this field of geysers is fed by an underlying volcanic activity that causes boiling craters, fumaroles of sulphurous vapours and of course geysers of boiling water.
At the end of the day you will reach Huyallajara.
Lunch and dinner included.
Night in Huyallajara.
