Between the Salvador Dali desert and geysers Sol de Manana is located a relaxing place of Polgue Thermal. Large basin, if it can be so called at all, a place at an altitude of 4400 meters above the ground, fills the vast Salar Challviri, whose western flooded part is called Laguna Salada. Due to volcanic activity a pleasant warm spring originated. It is drained into a simple pool and invites you to have a bath.

Thermal Polque

Until a few years ago it was a natural pool – just surrounded by stones. Now it is concreted. Even so, there is a pleasant and basically almost the only possibility to have a hot bath on the entire salar tour.

Salar de Challviri

If you do not want to splash around in mini thermal pool or you have a long break here, perhaps because you need to prepare lunch, it is not bad at all to walk around and enjoy the heavily salted scenery.

Thermal creek

The air can be even 15 degrees below zero, but water is in some places still almost boiling.

From here the path continues towards the geysers Sol de Mañana rises and the lagoon slowly fades into the depths.
