It started in San Pedro de Atacama in the far North of the Chilean desert. The trip was four days of 4WD travel to Uyuni, seeing the sights of the amazing landscape along the way. The sights included lakes, geysers, wildlife, salt flats and some very unique accomodation.

Flamingos wade in the water in the distance.

Beware the Candirú. Don’t want that fish anywhere near your stuff.
Hotel in the middle of nowhere. At least 4,000m above sea level.

Pretty magical place.
This trip runs from San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni, but can be done in reverse. It’s a few hundred US dollars, pretty much the best value trip going around. Be prepared for high altitude as the first few days are 4000m above sea level. Can be rough.
