The cold is intense. You will see pools where the land seems to boil red, gray and scarlet mud can be traversed by us in their own shores. The desert and Salar de Chalviri is another scene of great landscape value that combines the white snow, ocher desert, the blue water and white of borax. In one corner we can take a bath in Termas de polques and enjoy a hearty breakfast outdoors.
And almost as an excess and to leave this desert valley, we will visit Laguna verde, at the foot of the volcano Licancabur.
We arrive at this lagoon just on time to see how the water go from emerald green to a duller.
