Cejar Lagoon, Eyes of the Salt Flat & Tebenquiche Lagoon

per person CLP$ 25.000 :: USD$40

Description

Laguna Céjar, Ojos del Salar & Laguna Tebenquiche: one of the best tours in existence.

Laguna Céjar: it has a turquoise color being appreciated in its plenitude in the totally sunny days, but the special thing of this lagoon is not the color but its composition, since due to its high amount of salt and lithium, you can experience the same for what the Dead Sea is so famous, that is to say, you do not sink, and you can move calmly on the water without needing to know to swim, and in addition the water is not especially frozen. After the bath take off the salt, as you get a lot on your body.

Eyes of the Salar: They are two lagoons located a little further south of Laguna Céjar. They are two freshwater pools, where you can also take a bath, but unlike the previous one, the water is fresh and therefore does not float, so you must know how to swim, as they are deep. Over the years these pools have been approaching and opening with a tendency later to form only one. The temperature of the water is similar to that of Laguna Céjar.

Laguna Tebenquiche: It is a lagoon that is mostly dry, but its morphology is not the one expected to be earth, mud and rocks, but its plain shines because it is totally white, due to the salt crystals. It is immense the plain where you feel like running, also feeling the sensation of being in another world.

In some parts of this lagoon or plain you can see how the wind moves the water that is covering certain sectors of this lagoon which is a separate show, and even more apart is watching the sunset, an incredible end.
