Ojos del Salar Just a few meters from the Colchani salt refinery you will see the piles of salt that are formed. And we will also see the well known Ojos del Salar just a few meters away from us. Small eruptions of water that sprout up under the salt floor. Did you know that these eyes have healing properties? If, like us, you are curious, don't hesitate to ask your guide all the questions during your trip - he knows all the answers!
