The Hotel Tayka de Sal is located two hundred meters from the village of Tahua at 3700 meters and is placed at the foot of Thunupa volcano on the north shore of the Salar de Uyuni. It was built with blocks of salt extracted from the Salar, on a promontory that dominates the whole region and offers unparalleled panoramic views of the area.
The Tayka de Sal hotel is completely built of salt blocks. The roofs are straw brava, traditional material of the Andean roof. The rooms and circulation areas take advantage of solar energy to maintain a pleasant climate inside the hotel; At night, on very cold days, the internal temperate climate is reinforced with an integral heating system in the rooms based on radiators that circulate hot water and emit heat. Due to its strategic location in this part of Salar, Hotel Tayka de Sal offers a wide range of cultural activities and communion with nature throughout the region.
Snacks such as nuts, granola, or jerky go a long way, whether for the airplane journey or to share with guides or new friends.
