This will be the longest day in this Andean journey. We will leave the hotel to keep tracing the desert footprints, visiting a geological formation called árbol de la Piedra (Stone Tree) a few minutes away.
We will soon arrive at Laguna Colorada with its amazing ochre color contrasting with the blue
sky and pink flamingoes flying over the place.
Moving on, we will visit a geothermal field called Geysers del Sol del Mañana (Morning Sun Geysers), located at 5000m above sea level.
Early in the morning, right when the sun begins to get warmer, we will see fumaroles coming out from the ground of up to 100 mts high.
After the geysers, we will visit Laguna Verde (Green Lagoon), located right at the foot of Licancabur volcano, border with Atacama Desert in Chile. This is another sight of nature; they look surreal, like landscape portraits.
Right after Laguna Verde, we will head to the town of San Pablo de Lipez, our final destination.
There, we will stay at Hotel de los Volcanos, the last one of the Tayka hotel chains.
This day will be around 12 hours journey; there is no other way to shorten it without visiting all the tourist attractions we will have been to.
