Departamento de Potosi, Bolivia
Northeast of Laguna Colorada there is a climb to over 4,500m before descending to the mining camp at Salar Capina. After skirting the edge of the Salar for a while the climb to the pass begins – initially steep it slackens off as you near the top. Descend down a nice valley, but on a rubbish surface, to Villamar.
