We depart for the Laguna Chiarkhota. We head west along the Laguna Tuni and go up a valley towards the northeast. We gradually climb to a beautiful valley at the foot of the Condoriri massif. We pass the Laguna Chiarkhota, base camp at the “Head of the Condor,” and the “Pequeño Alpamayo”. Just seeing these magical places is worth the effort to get there. We explore the glacier that leads to the Pequeño Alpamayo, where we get a breathtaking view of the “Head of the Condor” and its majestic glacier. We take a progressively more difficult trail to bypass the Laguna Chiarkhota to the Col Austria at the foot of the Condoriri (5140 m /16,863 FT). A steep and screed slope awaits us as we climb up to Pico Austria (5300m /17388 FT. Again, the effort is worth it. The view is amazing, and it feels as if we were there standing on the massif.

As we make our way to the Salar of Uyuni, we stop at the cave of the Galaxies, a unique place. The Salar of Uyuni blows us away. Even better than pictures or what we could have imagined. Its snow white surface, speckled with islands, play with our perception and awe us with beauty. We explore the island of Incahuasi and its unique cacti that seem to have come out of nowhere and into interesting poses. Time permitting, we visit a small salt farm in the village of Tahua and the museum in Chantani. We enjoy the sunset over the salar and spend the night in Tahua.
