The mountain lakes in Eduardo Avaroa National Park

On the dusty path you can always pass beautiful mountain lakes in Eduardo Avaroa National Park. At this point we had reached the highest point of our tour in almost 5,000 meters!

The Geyser Field Sol de Manana

In the afternoon we reached the Sol de Manana geyser field,which reminded us of Yellowstone National Park in the USA because of its many hot springs, boiling mud holes and geysers. It’s just fascinating to see it bubbling, hissing and bubbling all over the world.

Here is a video of the geyser field “Sol de Masana”.

Our accommodation in the Eduardo Avaroa National Park

Our accommodation for the night was a very simple hostel located by a lake. Our group stayed in a 6-bed room.

Since there were no showers in the property, we took an outdoor bath after dinner in a hot spring, which was not far away and really nice.

Desierto de Dali & Laguna Verde Stone Desert

The next morning we had breakfast at 6.30 a.m. and half an hour later we started. On today’s agenda was the stone desert Desierto de Dali and the Laguna Verde.

Laguna Verde is a lake whose colour changes between light turquoise and dark green, depending on the strength of the wind and the sediments it swirls. Unfortunately there was no strong wind with us, so we could not see the green coloring of the lake. Around 9 a.m. we dropped off the Swiss couple at the Chilean border, because they wanted to continue their journey from there to San Pedro de Atacama.

Our return trip to Uyuni

We went back to Uyuni with the rest of the group. After a seven-hour drive and a lunch break we arrived back in Uyuni.

We can only recommend such a tour through Bolivia to everyone! We found above all the many different landscapes on our tour absolutely worth seeing. However, you also have to get used to the height of 5,000 meters and the associated headaches 😉
