On the last of the tour we drove all the way to the southernmost part of Bolivia, really close to the Chilean border. Our first stop was some amazing geisers, it really felt like being on another planet (once again!). Then we headed towards a lagoon with natural hot springs. The weather was cold and windy, but we were lucky to get enough of a break for Oscar to lead the way into the hot hot water! After that, we passed by a spot where rock formations look like they have been staged by humans but they are completely natural and the area is called "Dali's Desert". The next stop is the famous green lagoon, Laguna Verde, which is contaminated with arsenic (which also gives it its color). The last stop is the colored lagoon, Laguna Colorada, which is breathtaking. It's a really beautiful day but a really cold one at 4500 meters so we can't really lounge araound, unfortunately. Another 5 hours takes us back to Uyuni where a night bus will take us to La Paz. These 3 days were absolutely amazing, nothing like anything we have experienced before. You simply cannot see these vibrant colors at sea level!
