Saw more Llamas in the morning, seeing volcanos along the drive, went through little rivers which were partly frozen.
The scenery is still so incredible and breathtaking.
The moon and the mountains, it just looks gorgeous.
Passing two lagunas: Hedionda and Kollpa. Then we stopped at the small Salar de Chalviri.
On the way we had a break at the hotsprings, which was so good as we could not shower the day before.
The 30 degree water was so relaxing to just sit there after all the dust and sitting in the car driving on little bumpy roads. Niiiiiice.
Shortly after we came to the desierto de Dali (Dali dessert. Probably has its name because it is so beautifuf with the view lava rocks that are just there or because Dali painted this scenery.
Lunchbreak then at Laguna Verda, the vulcano Licancabur 5950m is on the other side of the lake. The lake changes its colour when the wind comes. Lots of black lava stones and rocks around.
The Geisers sol de manana at 5000m are impressing. Especially one that is very loud and active all the time. Very impressive!
We finished the day by visiting Laguna colorado where we so many flamingos. Did not expect to see them in this cold environment.
Llama look nice but the llama babys are even cuter !!! Love them.
Had seen millions of beautiful stars and milkyway in the sky at night. But it was freezing.
Slept in Huayllajara at approx 4600m, again in very basic accomodation, no heating, no shower and very cold. The window was frozen during the night.Good to have a sleeping bag and duvet. brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Sorry some Pictures are in the wrong sequence today due to a very slow annoying internet connection.
