After lunch you will go forward to the central point of the salt which is the Inca Wasi Island (Fish Island) where you see the giant cactus and the coral Rock formations. There will be always time to stop in the middle of the salt to see how big it is the unusual formations in the salt flat that look like (hexagons and pentagons) on top of it. And something 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 the small Village of ATULCHA to spend the first night.
