|WHAT TO BRING||
There are many options to make the best out of your experience on the Salar.
The one not to be missed is a hike in the morning to a nearby «island» covered with giant cactus and amazing views of the Salar. We usually prefer to avoid the Island of Incahuasi, the most famous but very, very touristic one.
In the afternoon, another option is a visit to the charming village of Coquesa and its mummies sheltered in a cave 600 m over the village, again with beautiful views of the Salar.
At about 1:15 driving time, lies the interesting archeological site of Alcaya, an old pre-colombian city near Salinas.
The fittest ones can hike to the lower lip of Tunupa volcano crater. (2 hrs)
When in activity, a visit to the Salinas will help you to understand how locals collect the salt from the surface of the Salar.
You can also borrow one of our mountain bikes and experience the flatness of the Salar around the camp.
At night, a telescope is at your disposal to observe the starry night of the Altiplano.
During the wet season and when the level of water allows it, enjoy a stand up paddle ride on the Salar.
We consider that food is another way to discover a country and its culture. Who else could be the best at delivering authentic and inventive cuisine at Kachi Lodge if not multi-awarded Gustu Restaurant in La Paz?
Gustu restaurant was established in early 2013, aiming to become a showcase of the great potential of Bolivia’s production, culture and biodiversity, with the dream of making Bolivian gastronomic culture an engine for national development.
Acknowledged as one of the best restaurants in the continent, this team works uniquely and exclusively with Bolivian products. Gustu generates respectful relationships with each of its suppliers, seeking to consolidate the Bolivian productive chain, beginning with the boost of fair business activities.
But Gustu is not only a fine dining restaurant. It is the first project of the Melting Pot Bolivia Foundation, a foundation dedicated to driving gastronomic projects that benefit people from vulnerable backgrounds aiming to provide them with opportunities to improve their life conditions, their families and those of their communities.
