Following the first day of the jeep tour across the Uyuni salt flats in Bolivia came the amazing desert adventure. This was part of the 3 days/2 nights guided tour hired with Andes Discovery. Being the nature lover I am, this could definitely not be missed in my visit to Bolivia. Having been to the Andes mountains many times before,the radiant somewhat isolated scenery of snowed-top mountains, dry yellow-brown valleys with embedded intense emerald lagoons and chunky fury llamas roaming freely on the pastures was not strange to me. However, the beauty, the remoteness, the excitement of a new adventure and the great company I had made this trip to the Andes a memorable one. Even the most descriptive writing could not portray the mesmerizing scenery I witnessed and, hence, I will attempt to transport you to these exciting two days throughout my camera lens. Enjoy the ride!
Second Day: From Uyuni Salt Flats to Tayka Desert Hotel
The second day of the tour began early in the morning with some incidences due to my horrible altitude sickness but luckily for me it faded away and managed to enjoy the rest of the trip. My slow low-energy start evolved into a full liveliness mode, allowing me to experience the lunch at the dusty tiny passing-by town, the characteristic colors of the Andean high plains, the 2 lagoons of Cañapa and Hedionda inhabited by beautiful pink and white Flamingoes and protected by the majestic white mountains, and the relaxing time at the excellent ecological Tayka Desert Hotel.
Third day: Eduardo Avaroa Reserve
After a great good night sleep at almost 5000m altitude (and without oxygen bottle this time!), I wrapped up warmly to face the minus 5 degrees but sunny outdoors. We kicked off early in the morning at around 6.30 for a long day ahead of us filled with various lagoons, volcanos, country borders, thermal baths, more Flamingos and Llamas; visiting the exceptional natural reserve of Eduardo Avaroa, the Dali Desert, the Stone Tree and the Moon Valley.
The landscapes encountered were constantly changing, never boring, always with different color shades and terrain shapes. Cruising through the Andean plains, the Natural Reserve of Eduardo Avaroa and the Dali Dessert was a gift to the eye and an entertainment to the senses! The jeep tour ended where we started in Uyuni after 3 amazing days!! I highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Bolivia: it is one of a kind!
