Crossing one of the largest salt lakes in the world (12,000 square kilometers) at an elevation of 3650m is possibly the most surreal and amazing experience to be found. The landscape is extraordinarily beautiful, a blinding white of the desert surrounded by extinct volcanoes and stunning red and emerald lakes. Incahuasi Island (often referred to by the wrong name Fisherman's Island), located in the center of Salt Lake is home to hundreds of giant cactus captured in the picturesque rocky landscape that contrasts with the salt. There are many opportunities to see wildlife in their natural habitat Andes, including the very elegant and rare James flamingos. Adding the steaming geysers, boiling mud pots and the opportunity to experience the cozy feel of hot springs in the desert in a comfortable 30 °C
