COLCHANI, lies beside the Salar de Uyuni and is the home of the Cooperative Rosario – the main plant for the iodisation of salt. It is the processing plants to observe the methods of salt extraction from the Salar,here ovens are used to dry the salt, which is then formed into cakes where you will witness the iodisation of salt for national consumption.
Fish Island( isla incawasi) is located in the centre of the salar at 100 km from Uyuni. This is the main destination for most salt-desert tours. It is a remarkable and otherworldly place – a hilly outpost covered in trichocerus cacti and a flat, white Sea of hexagonal salt tiles. A large population of stranded viscachas (Andean rodents) inhabits its rocky slopes which also afford views of the salt flats that are reminiscent of the Polar region, dominated by the colours blue and white, but with images of hills turned to one side by 45°. Fish Island is an oasis with a unique and isolated ecosystem that is populated by cacti up to 9- 10 metres high. Photographers will find that Fish Island is one of the best sites in the world to indulge their passion. Lunch.
