Ojos del Salar (1/2)
En bordure du salar de Uyuni, le plus grand d廥ert de sel du monde 4660 m d'altitude, on trouve de temps en temps des lagunes de saumure. On raconte que l'eau viendrait du Volcan Tunapa (5420m) par une rivi鋨e souterraine... C'est un mythe, car aucune recherche n'a 彋 engag嶪 pour confirmer cette hypoth鋊e. Ces lagunes sont appel嶪s localement "Ojos del Salar" (les yeux du d廥ert de sel). En fait, cette partie de l'altiplano est endor嶯que c'est dire que son r廥eau hydrographique n'est pas raccord la mer. En arri鋨e plan, gauche, le Tunupa ,dont nous avons gravi les pentes la veille. Vous pouvez observer sa magnifique cald廨a plus en d彋ail ici. Nous sommes ici sur le territoire du village Aymara de Coquesa.

Ojos del Salar (1/2)
In edge of the Uyuni salt pan, the largest salt desert of the world, 4656m heigh, you can sometime find brine lagoons. It is told that water would come from the Volcano Tunapa (5420m) by an underground river... It is a myth, because no research was committed to confirm this assumption. These lagoons are locally called "Ojos del Salar" (eyes of the salt pan). In fact, this part of the altiplano is endoreic i.e. that its hydrographic network is not connected to the sea. On the background, left-side, Tunupa, which we climbed the slopes the day before. You can observe its splendid caldera more in detail here. We are here on the territory of the Aymara village called Coquesa.
