Salt Processing and Tourism

Colchani is a small village about 20 km north of Uyuni on the east edge of the Salar de Uynui. It is the first stop on most of the trips into the Salar. It's main industries are tourism and salt processing. Be sure to watch the area between the road and the Salar on the way from Uyuni to Colchani. There are often vicunas there. In the picture, you see three buildings on the west side of Colchani. From left to right, they are a shop/museum, salt processing building and a small hotel.
