5. Across Salar del Hombre Muerto

Antofagasta de la Sierrra, Salta and Catamarca, Argentina

New - Sightseeing - Easy - The Andes Challenge

The Salar del Hombre Muerto, (Dead Man’s Salt Pan) probably got its name after the discovery of Inca mummies in the area. The Incas used to mine for gold but now the salt pan is one of the most important lithium sources in the world. I struggled with powerful head and cross winds that swept across the lake. Surface - gravel, salt road then loose gravel Oxygen level: 12.5%
