2-11 盐湖-乌尤利Salt Flat – Uyuni

乌尤利的清晨

之前已经在Red Planet网上预订了3天两夜的行程,早上8:30带著行李准时到达旅行社做check-in,可惜得到了一个坏消息,就是最近盐湖一直下大雨,原订的盐湖日出日落星空行程和入住盐酒店都不幸地取消了,和旅行社争取了很久都没有办法再安排,昨晚和他们还用电邮沟通,都没有预先通知会改行程,如果可以早点知道,昨晚就可以去其他旅行社问先一下,最后是我只好按照他们的新安排(没有盐湖日出日落星空行程和盐酒店),第三天回程时,马上换车安排私团再出发去盐湖拍日落(要补300美元),至少减少一些遗憾。

出发前的准备,旅行社要求我们将两个行李合成一个,原因4驱车不够空间,我们还租了雨水鞋在盐湖使用。在旅行社内遇到两个上海来的女孩,她们是只参加一日团。我们的团是3架车,每架车有6个人旅客,我们的车只有4个,另外两个是丹麦来的情侣。

以下是网上的英文行程。

The train’s graveyard to see the first locomotives in Bolivia. afterwards you go to the small village of Colchani (Salt miners workshop next to the salt flats) visit the factories and see the rustic way of table salt production…… after this you will be taken to the great salt flat of Uyuni (salar de Uyuni) where you first will see the salt mining and the piles of salt (pyramids of salt) after this you go to see the eyes of the salt ( big holes in the salt flat where the water from underneath of this death lake still comes out by high pressure) later you go straight to the hotel made out of salt (the only hotel allowed inside of the salt flats) where you take your time for pictures taking a look of the rooms, salt sculptures and the lobby of the hotel (Playa Blanca) and having Lunch in the same place…….. after lunch you will go forward to the central point of the salt which is the Inca Wasy island (fish island) where you see the giant cactus and the coral Rock formations ……… There will be always time to stop in the middle of the salt to see how big is it the unusual formations in the salt flat that look like   (hexagons and pentagons) on top of it……. And something that you definitely have to do here are the pictures with the huge perspective (where people looks so tiny and funny). After some fun you go west direction to the small Village of ATULCHA to spend the first night. Arriving in there you will enjoy some hot coffee or chocolate at the tee time and later a delicious supper for dinner.

ACCOMMODATION: (salt hotel – private toilets) 10bs extra for hot shower

行程第一站是先去一个废弃火车的地方(train’s graveyard),听导游说这个地方是以前最早当地出现火车,还是必经之地,后来就荒废了,过了不知道多少年后,有一些人将火车涂鸦,成为了景点。我对这样的景点兴趣一般,奉劝拍照的朋友要小心,不要往太高处去爬,同行的朋友看到别人割伤手,还看到骨头,太恐怖了,全是已经生綉的铁,容易引起破伤风。

第二站是到了一条在Colchani的小村庄,参观盐工厂,看看他们是如何处理盐,我亦买了一些当地的盐作为纪念品。我们在一个用盐砖建造的小屋,享受导游准备的午餐。

很大块的盐

终于到达这次旅程最重要的地方 『盐湖』。名不虚传整个盐湖超级大,一望无际都是水。在这里是手机是完全没有信号的,大家不用看微信和发朋友圈等等,专心游玩吧。

由于之前一直下大雨,水的高度比常高了,天空之镜效果不太明显,地面都是盐的结晶,非常硬,我原本租了雨水鞋,但最后我亦不穿,难得来了就尽情感受,水很冰凉,很舒服,但不能走路太快,盐结晶是很硬和尖,每一步都是脚底按摩,爽!!!

我们坐的这个四驱车,我是一直在后座,很窄,我这么矮都受不了,能看出来我有多辛苦。
