Atacama & Uyuni
Desert & Altiplano, Chile - Bolivia
- 11,8 km / 7,3 mi
We drive to a high point in the Tunupa Volcano and begin our way down riding our bikes. Along the road there is a broad view of the Uyuni Salt Flat, crossing grazing lands, particularly of llamas. Along the road we get to see a large number of stone walls (pircas), of a pre-Incan origin, with diverse construction, protection, and grazing uses by Andean peoples.
For those yearning for a bit more of adventure, climbing the multicolored Tunupa volcano will take you to 17,822 f.a.s.l.
