A new luxury resort in Bolivia lets you enjoy unimpeded views of one of the world’s most stunning locations without all of the trials and tribulations that come with traditional camping trips.
At Kachi Lodge, you can stay in a series of domes in the middle of Salar de Uyuni, which is the largest salt flat in the world covering more than 4,000 square miles, according to Conde Nast Traveller.
Located at the base of Tunupa Volcano, the Kachi Lodge pods have a clear facade on one side to provide guests with panoramic views of the surrounding salt flat
Each pod comes equipped with a private bathroom, a double bed with hotel-style bedding, adequate heating, and a lounge area with seating
There’s also a larger dome at the center of the camp that serves as a casual gathering and dining space for visitors.
According to the Kachi Lodge website, the entire facility is run using sustainable energy and with the goal of leaving minimal impact on the surrounding environment. Kachi Lodge was also built in close collaboration with the nearby community, employing locals from the village of Jirira as drivers and guides and crafting its menu to reflect local cuisine.
Since the resort is located in a remote location nearly 12,000 feet above sea level, guests can take in unparalleled views of the night sky from the comfort of their sleeping quarters
The resort will provide you with telescopes if you want to take a closer look at the starry sky above, but there are other activities around the camp for guests. According to the resort’s website, you can mountain-bike across the salt falt, hike a part of the nearby volcano, visit an island covered with cacti, or explore the village of Coquesa, which houses mummies in a cave above the town.
It will set you back to stay there, though
The two-night minimum stay in one of the resort’s domes costs $US1,980 per person with the option to add additional nights for $US990 per person.
The rate includes travel to and from the airport, food and beverages, and excursions. You can find out more or book a visit by contacting [email protected].
