There will be always time to stop in the middle of the salt to see haw big is it the unusual formations in the salt flat that look like   (hexagons and pentagons) on top of it……. And some thing 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 visit the strange Galaxies Cave (calcified and petrified algae) in a very scary and amazing cavern, and last that day you go to the small Village of Agua Quisa to spend the first night ( hot coffee,  or chocolate at the tee time and  a delicious supper )  will be waiting for you  when  arriving there.

This desert is surrounded for many volcanoes…like dormant ones, extinct ones and one Semi active called Ollague (5840 high) which you see from the lookout and enjoy the steam that still comes out from the top of it.  Afterwards taking the way south direction you will get the Andean lagoons where flamingos are hanging around in hundreds   (along  the year three spices of flamingos can be  find) after this nice  landscapes, going  farther south  you will get the big desert of Siloli  at 4550 high (highest  and driest in the world)…ones you  crossed this desert in the other side of it  you will see  the  Rock tree  (lava cooled- rock formation).  Later  that day  the last stop will be in the amazing Red Lagoon to see some pink  flamingos and the redness of the water from the view point.  Afterwards the car will take you to the shelter to spend the second night ( hot coffee,  or chocolate at the tee time and  a delicious supper )  will be waiting for you  when  arriving there.
