As hotels in the desert go....pretty good

We booked this as part of a private, bespoke tour around Uyuni, the salt flats and the surrounding desert. It was beautifully made out of big lumps of rock, as the name suggests, in a small settlement called ( we think) San Pedro de Queme. Dinner was in their lovely fairly cosy restaurant where we also had a half bottle of Bolivian wine which was very passable. We got soup, chicken then apple and yogurt (that was a bit crap). Our room had big single beds, with loads of cosy blanket, and an amazing view of the village and the desert.Breakfast was unfortunately pretty poor- sugar puffs, porridge but no hot milk or microwave access to actually cook it, teas, a yogurt each, and some more bread. There was of course no internet at all. But it was a nice hotel and we knew it would be remote with limited resources.

... even get clouds here.. Jumped in a SUV truck with 5 other travellers and headed off on the tour. First stop was the train graveyard which was pretty cool, heaps of old abandoned trains that we climbed all over and took some tourist snaps. Next was the salt flats that absolutely amazed me. I think id have to claim it is the coolest scenery I have ever been in. Just pure white salt flats that reach ...

After a bus, taxi, and bus, we arrived in freezing Uyuni (literally, below 32 degrees) just after 1 AM. We wandered the ghost town until we found an open hotel with a triple room. Done. Our tour started at 10 AM the next morning. We ate breakfast and stuffed ourselves into the Toyota 4Runner that would be our home for the next three days. We shared the car with our guide, Marine, two Danish guys, and two Swiss ...

... will never forget.

The Southern Altiplano of Bolivia is a unique ecosystem built upon geothermal fields and rich mineral deposits. Because of this you will find lagoons of the most astonishing colours, thermal pools to soak in despite the freezing temperatures outside, volcanic rock formations scattered at random intervals, bubbling pools of sulphur and some incredible wildlife.

At the border on the morning of 30 June we were assigned to our ...
