PLACE: Sol De Mañana
LOCATION:  Sur Lípez Province, Bolivia
NOTORIOUS: Geothermal Field
NEAREST AIRPORT: TBD
COORDINATES: 22.435014°S 67.75791°W
CURRENCY: Bolivian Boliviano

This place is so mysterious, Google doesn’t even recognize it when I ask for coordinates. This geothermal field that rests in the south west of Bolivia and seems to be a common visitor attraction that no one is documenting it properly. The photographic scene on all my go-to sites are incredible but I haven’t seen any major articles about it! The wiki page is pathetic even.

All I know is that this is the highest elevation geothermal sulphur spring field in the world. They are commonly mistaken for geysers. The volcanic activity below the field is activating these boiling mud pools. It is extremely close to a place near and dear to my heart, the salar de uyuni (the salt flats I’ve written about before). Bolivia seems to be the place to see, man. Note: there are some hot springs in the area that seem to be a local hang out.

  1. Oh you should absolutely go there! Its typically a several days 4WD tour from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama in Chile, you pass the amazing salt flats, stay in salt hotels, visit colorful lakes and mountains and finally you get to this beautiful geothermal area. This tour was probably one of the best things I did in all of South America and the mud pools was the highlight. But the entire tour is amazing and thats probably why this geothermal area isn’t mentioned more, its just a “small” part of the Salar de Uyuni wonder!

    Here are som pics from my tour: http://siforeser.blogspot.se/2009/12/pictures-from-all-over-bolivia.html

    1. Amazing! Thanks so much for this incredible insight Sofie. I’m surprised I didn’t hear about this when I did my post about the Salar de Uyuni. Do you have any other travel must-sees? I’ve still never been to South America… ❤ Alyson
