Luxury Adventure On The Salt Flats

  • Type: Tent structures
  • Setting: Desert, Lake, Wilderness

In the remote corners of the world, an hour flight from la Paz, Bolivia offers some of the most exhilarating vistas: at 3600m high, Uyuni Salt Flats, the world’s largest salt flat is one of them. On the immense salt flat, one journey takes you to another dimension, to one of the most remarkable lodges on the planet and only luxury lodge on the salt flats. Set on a wooden platform near a cacti covered island amongst one of the wildest and most phenomenal landscapes on the planet, the six luxurious geodesic domes resembles an isolated space station. During the day, guests can choose among endless list of bespoke activities while at night, they can stargaze - thanks to the lack of pollution and the altitude, the stars and milky way appear to be brighter than ever. We love that Kachi Lodge is almost completely self-sufficient in terms of its natural resource use, the preservation of the environment has been at the heart of their concerns since the beginning of this stunning project. If you are travelling to Bolivia and are looking for a unique experience then staying in all-inclusive Kachi Lodge is a must!

Why choose Kachi Lodge

Cactus Island

Cactus Island

Some of the endemic wildlife of the altiplano can be spotted near the lodge: flamingos, vicuñas, viscachas, Andean fox. On your way from Uyuni, you'll probably stop at the old train cemetery with its dozens of old locomotives and carriages dating back to early 20th century, then to Inca Huasi Island, covered with a forest of giant cacti which you can also find all around the lodge.

Stargazing

Stargazing

At night, when the telescope is out, the sky seems to open up and pour stars above one’s head: thanks to the lack of pollution and the altitude, the stars and milky way appear to be brighter than ever. The salar almost seems like a constellation of its own at night as the salt crystals created myriads of little sparks.

Quinoa Fields & Herds of Llamas

Quinoa Fields & Herds of Llamas

A daily visit (one hour excursion - Jirira village) to Celia and her quinoa fields is a unique way to apprehend the local culture and the vitality of the Jirira community. Also fighting the extreme climate, Julian, a local farmer, welcomes visitors amongst his herd of llamas. While grazing along the shores of the salar, one learns more about the quality of the wool collected and the importance of llama meat for local communities.

Gastronomy

Gastronomy

Following a first culinary journey with one acclaimed restaurant in La Paz, Kachi Lodge continues its exploration of Bolivian gastronomy by entrusting the reins of its restaurant to Proyecto Nativa, Sucre’s must-taste restaurant. At its head, Juan Pablo Gumiel, one of the rising stars of the Bolivian food scene, brilliantly blends local flavors and international influences, selecting the best organic products, grown locally.

The Ancient Mommies of Alcaya

The Ancient Mommies of Alcaya

Full excursion (half day, lunch included); The ancient archaeological site of Alcaya is revered as sacred grounds for the local Bolivian communities: it is believed to have been a unique city for one of the oldest pre-Inca civilizations in the Andes. At 3800 meters high, set on a hillside next to a bucolic river, the pre-Colombian citadel is an open-air museum.

Tunupa Volcano

Tunupa Volcano

Full excursion (half day, lunch included); A hike up the Tunupa mirador or summit is one of the highlights of a stay at Kachi Lodge. Towering at 5321 meters high with its ochre and reddish coloured slopes, the sleeping volcano is revered by locals as the feminine deity that give birth to the salar.

Mountain Biking on the Salar

Mountain Biking on the Salar

A selection of high quality mountain bikes are available at Kachi Lodge: an ideal way to explore the surrounding islands or venture out in the open, a bike ride is made easy as the surface of the salar is perfectly flat. Whether it is just heading out from the lodge or driving out to the centre of the salar for a truly remote ride, it will be one to remember. For the more adventurous, there is also the option to drive the bikes up the side of the nearby Thunupa volcano, for an adrenaline filled downhill adventure.

Sunrise Hikes

Sunrise Hikes

Heading out to hike up cacti-covered Kachi Island near the lodge or hopping on the 4x4 to hike up small hills on the rim of the salar offer specular vistas. Unique encounters with 80 to a 100 year old cacti and their strange bodily silhouettes are also part of the journey.

Sunset Thrills

Sunset Thrills

A sunset drive, chasing the sun around the extremities of the salar is an adventure in itself. Every time, catching the last rays of light is spectacular: behind small salt extraction sites that turn to pink, near a body of water where end of the day reflexions are true works of art, or in the middle of the salar from where the edge turn to orange, each sunset is mesmerizing.

4 x 4 Across the Salar

4 x 4 Across the Salar

Whether it is driving across the salar for the sheer adventure, searching for small pools which provide impressive salt crystals, or trekking up one of the many islands which exist across this expanse, is a must.

Amazing location but many issues

NY2, - January 2020

Amazing location but many issues due to very inconsistent food, service, and rooms. Examples of food problems included pork in vegetarian food, serving toasted white bread as French Toast for breakfast, running out of eggs and other essential items, and very few food choices. Examples of service problems included requests for food and water requiring constant reminders to be fulfilled. Examples of room problems include shower not working as well as water pump leaking water all over room. Althoug...

Great vision, but not there yet

gina_hung2000, Taiwan - January 2020

The location and view were amazing. I was the only guest when I visited. I was left completely alone at night when all the staff (other than a watchman) stayed somewhere else. I enjoyed the silence and tranquility very much! The dome was very warm (hot) during the day, but freezing during the night. The stove provided the heat for the bedroom, but not so much for the bathroom. Prepare for the cold going to the bathroom during the night. It took me a while to get used to the burner toilet. If you...

Once in a lifetime experience

Kevin and Lianne, United States - March 2020

This was a magical place! We were celebrating our anniversary and everything was perfect! There is no other way to do Salar the Uyuni. You are in the middle of the Salar, you wake up and go to sleep in the clouds with incredible sunsets and sunrise. The food was amazing, as well as the drinks and yes we tried Gustu in La Paz before coming here. The room is incredible for the fact that you are in a very isolated place, and things are not very accessible, there is heat at night and during the day ...
