BOOKING

 

The Andean High Route

Module: Jeep Expedition

Duration: 5 days

Period: All year

Service: Private

This is a double entry circuit since it can begin from Potosí or Uyuni, in inverse sense. The effect, however, is the same, the admiration after exploring the marvels of the South Lipez (region of condors and volcanos). A fantastic trip for Andean culture vultures. The altiplano offers in this region some of the most disconcerting landscapes in South America: the great Uyuni Salt Flats, the multicolored lagoons, geysers and volcanoes. A circuit for the lovers of open spaces.

Day 1: POTOSÍ – TUPIZA

4WD expedition until Uyuni, far from the common tracks.

Departure from hotel at 09:00 by private 4WD. We will cross the Chichas region known for its local fermented corn beer, chicha. Then, we skirt the Frailes Mountain range before arriving to the pleasant village of Tupiza, the place where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid met the end of their legendary epic (About 6h).
Lunch on the way (included). Dinner open. Hotel.

Day 2 : TUPIZA - SAN PABLO DE LIPEZ

Departure at 08:00. We ascend to the Altiplano and reach a region rarely traveled by tourists. We continue our expedition to the wilderness where condors and ñandus have found refuge from the more frequented regions of South Lípez. By the end of the afternoon, arriving at the village of San Pablo de Lípez (or to San Antonio, depending on the schedule).
Lunch. All included. Lodging in the house of a villager of San Pablo or in San Antonio's community school (rustic).

Day 3 : SAN PABLO DE LIPEZ - QUETENA - LAGUNA VERDE

From this point we begin the discovery of the marvels of South Lípez. We will pass by San Antonio's old village (abandoned by their inhabitants because they believed that the place had been possessed by the devil...). Later on, we will cross a pass at 4550 meters on the Soniquera volcano before beginning the descent to the village of Quetena. We skirt the Yellow lagoon and later the Uturuncu volcano. After that, we will continue our trip to Laguna Verde (Green Lagoon), located at the foot of the Licancabur volcano (5960 m.a.s.l.).

Lunch. All included. Lodging in a shelter (rustic).

Day 4 : LAGUNA VERDE - LAGUNA COLORADA - SAN JUAN

From this point we begin the discovery of the marvels of South Lípez. We will pass by San Antonio's old village (abandoned by their inhabitants because they believed that the place had been possessed by the devil...). Later on, we will cross a pass at 4550 meters on the Soniquera volcano before beginning the descent to the village of Quetena. We skirt the Yellow lagoon and later the Uturuncu volcano. After that, we will continue our trip to Laguna Verde (Green Lagoon), located at the foot of the Licancabur volcano (5960 m.a.s.l.).

Lunch. All included. Lodging in a shelter (rustic).

2 hours of travel from San Juan, we arrive at the Uyuni Salt Flats (3650 m.a.s.l.), the biggest in the world. On the way we’ll stop in the heart of the salt flats, at Incahuasi Island (House of the Inca in Quechua). This place, covered by volcanic rock, is also known as the Isla del Pescado (Fish Island). In the afternoon, we will cross the Salt Flats to reach its west side. Along the road, we will visit the Colchani salt mines and the salt hotel (it has been closed since November 2001).
