In winter (dry season from May to October), when the surface is hardened, almost geometric figures formed by the salt particles agglomerated into polygons appear. In summer (rainy season from November to February) the salt desert is transformed into a giant mirror that blends the purest sky of America.

We will enter in desert sand and pebble surfaces of enormous extent, no roads, almost aimlessly. These deserts are great masters of the whole palette of terracotta. Red, orange, ocher, bronze, brown and beige happen in every curve of the road, fighting the traveler’s attention. Faced with this color palette we have raised the Desert Hotel, with private bathrooms, hot water and space heating.
At dawn we leave in search of known geysers Sol de Mañana, we arrive at them with the first rays of light. This is the highest point of the route; near 5000 m The cold is intense. Noisy fumaroles and boiling pools where the land appears red, gray and scarlet pimples may be traversed by us in their own shores.

And almost as excessive as, to leave this desert valley, know the Laguna Verde, at the foot of the volcano Lincancabur.
