With many of the village’s younger residences fleeing for economic opportunities, this lodge is seen by the community as a way to rescue their indigenous culture and provide opportunities for the future. Learn about their traditional agricultural practices, including their specialization in quinoa production, and take a guided walk with a community member to the sacred Jukil mountaintop for a beautiful view of the village below and the salt flats beyond. Meals of local ingredients grown in the village are prepared by ladies who were provided culinary training through the project.

Enjoy a final day of exploring the unique landscapes before boarding an overnight bus back to La Paz. Today you will be heading into the Uyuni Salt Flats.

  • Introduction

    On this 31-day tour of Peru and Bolivia, explore a side of South America that many visit, but few really get to know. Begin with Peru’s desert coast, where the Nazca lines have mystified travellers for eons. Then trek the Andean highlands, awash in rich Incan culture (both past and present), before experiencing the iconic Machu Picchu, where we are the Inca Trail’s largest operator. Reach even greater heights in Bolivia, where the capital of La Paz is one of the highest cities in the world. South of here, the Uyuni Salt Flats welcome travellers eager to explore one the planet’s starkest, and most mesmerizing, geological formations. On this tour, feel closer to the two countries’ history, nature, and culture in a way that few ever get to experience.

The Advantages of Bookmundi
  • Selected Local Travel Experts All our local travel experts have been chosen based on rigorous selection criteria. In fact, we reject 98 out of 100 local travel agencies, and thereby giving you access to the top 1-2% local travel experts.
  • Secure Online Payment and Financial Guarantee Each and every trip is required to go through Bookmundi's secure payment platform, powered by Stripe and supported by SSL. All payments are therefore carried out in secure manners. We are furthermore member of the Danish Travel Fund which gives you a 100% financial guarantee for any money you pay on Bookmundi, even if we went bankrupt (which we we will not!).
  • Trip Replacement or 100% Reimbursement Bookmundi has hand-picked your local travel expert. Our role, as your trusted third party, is therefore to make sure that your entire experience runs as seamless and secure as possible. We guarantee to you that in the unlikely event where a local travel expert cancels your trip after your deposit or full payment has been made, we commit to replacing these services with another equally qualified agency so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing to replace it, we will give you a 100% reimbursement.
