Today, after we had defrosted from the night before, we set of early in the 4x4s for our last day of the tour.
The first stop today was a mountainous are full of llamas 🙂 we saw many of them along the way.
We then stopped in a small village called Villa mar for refreshments. The village was very picturesque and in the distance you could still see part of a plane that crashed into the mountains in the 90’s!
We then visited the black lagoon, a lagoon high up in the mountains. The drive to get there was pretty crazy. Steep, windy dirt track through the mountains barely wide enough to fit the car. In fact we did hit a couple of rocks along the way.
Once we got to the clearing, it was about a 20 min hike/climb to the black lagoon. It was such a beautiful view and the journey to get there was pretty amazing too!
Back in the car, we stopped for lunch by a river just under a bridge, again the food was really good, and then went on to the train cemetry.
The train cemetry was very strange. A bunch of steam trains abandoned in the middle of nowhere. I’m not really sure of the story behind it but I will definitely google it when I get home!
We then went back to our hotel in Uyuni to grab our luggage before boarding our 5 hour bus to Potosi.
After a quick check in at the hotel, we headed out for some dinner and after a pretty long day of travelling, went straight to bed.
