Chile

Chile

is the last place I want to visit before leaving South America. the last place I want to go to is the Easter island ( hand of the desert Atacama). To get there I'll be travelling by car it takes about 34 hours its about 2,805 km. This stop is one of the top modern cities in South America, and Chile's main gateway: Santiago; a truly cosmopolitan city able to preserve its traditions, located close to vineyards, wineries, ski resorts and beach towns. Continue to a remote island in the South Pacific, Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, is an UNESCO world heritage site, known for its hundreds of gigantic moai statues scattered all over the island, discover one of the world's most awe-inspiring cultures! Return to the capital and take a glance of Santiago through the downtown blocks that reveals a mighty circle of mountains. Continue with a flight to the Atacama Desert, the driest non-polar desert in the world! get to know its mountains, salt deposits, towns, lagoons, volcanoes, and geyser.

Salar de Uyuni

After visiting Cristo de la Concordia,

my next destination is Salar de Uyuni. I have some few information that I know about this place. Salar de Uyuni comprises over 10,000kmĀ² in the Potosi region. The salt is over 10 meters thick in the centre. In the dry season, the salt plains are a completely flat expanse of dry salt, but in the wet season, it is covered with a thin sheet of water that is still drivable. Also some things I need to bring Flashlight (torch),Coins and small bills because the bathrooms aren't free ,Sun glasses, Camera, extra battery and loads of memory cards ,Extra water ,Sunblock and hat ,Sleeping bag ,Warm clothes ,Flip-flops ,Towel ,Extra snacks, especially fruit and protein and Lip Balm. To get there the options include rail from Avaroa on the Chilean border (unreliable departure times), rail from Oruro, Bolivia, bus (including a tourist bus) from Oruro, Potosi, or La Paz, Bolivia, and flying from La Paz.

Cristo de la Concordia

Crossing border from Cusco, lima to Bolivia

The next place I'm going to visit is Bolivia and the two places I want to go is Salar de uyuni and Cristo de la Concordia. I did the route by car. The road is not that bad. It should take about 8 to 10 hours. The scenery is beautiful, but the only must-sees in this route are Titicaca Lake and Tiwanaku. I got here in La Paz department Bolivia now traveling by car going to Cristo de la Concordia. Travel time 6 hours and 47 minutes.
When I saw the Big statue of Christ it felt warm and its my first time seeing this its really a new experience for me. I also got a chance to went inside it.
