East from San Pedro de Atacama on the Altiplano (High Plateau), Tara Salt Flat is located in the biggest caldera of South America, La Pakana. This means you’ll actually walk inside a huge crater. A large amount of flamingos and llamas can be spotted on site.
It is recommended that you bring winter clothing and comfortable trekking shoes. Please note that this excursion takes you to more than 4,000 meters (over 13,000 feet) above sea level, so it will be important to remain hydrated. It is also recommended to avoid alcoholic drinks the night before this trip. If you commonly suffer from altitude sickness, we recommend taking this tour after passing a few days in Atacama in order to acclimate. This excursion is not recommended for people who suffer from high blood pressure or heart disease. Pregnant women and children younger than 4 years old should not take this tour.
