Go deeper into the desert to see rock formations and desert landscapes with red and green-coloured lakes and native flamingos before visiting the Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve.
Chiguana Desert - Lagoons - Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve - Red Lagoon Sol de Manana Geyser (B/L/D)
Start the morning off at 7:00 am with breakfast, before going to visit the Chiguana Desert, located on the south side of the Uyuni salt flats. It is surrounded by volcanoes, such as the Ollague Volcano (5840m), one that is still active, and that can be seen from the lookout.
Next, we'll continue along a rocky road - Pasito Tuntun - to the beautiful Andean lagoons, inhabited by 3 species of Andean flamingos. Marvel at three lagoons on the way: ??Canapa' where you'll spot the first pink flamingos, ??Hedionda' where lunch will be served, and ??Chiarcota' where you'll see a wider variety of birds and altiplanic fauna.
We'll then enter the Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve, and visit the Desert of Siloli, at 4550m (the highest and driest desert in the world). Make sure you take a photo next to the 'Rock tree', a lava rock formation. Before arriving to your final destination of the day, we will stop at the viewpoint by the Red Lagoon, where you can spot more pink flamingos in their natural habitat, and admire this intense, red-colored lake. Stay the night at a shared family lodging, "HAYLLAJARA".
