Volcanos, colored lagoons, birds, lakes, steam, boiling mud. It almost seems that a trip across Bolivia’s southwest can easily compete witha voyage to Mars. At least as far as unusual, mind-blowing landscapes.
It is not difficult to take pictures like these, but please don’t even think of going alone. Three-day tours by jeep including transportation, lodging (it’s COLD) and food is relatively inexpensive and easily booked on the spot in either Uyuni, Bolivia or San Pedro de Atacama, in neighboring Chile.
