Geothermal fields Sol de Maňana is located in almost five thousand meters above sea level. It is the highest point of the jeep Salar Tour, of course, if there is no plan for individual ascent to some of a range of local volcanoes. Tourists can admire smoky fumaroles here, mud sizzling from the puddles and sometimes strange red puddles. Beware testing the temperature of boiling mud as it can be very dangerous.

Devil's cauldron

Sol de Maňana is made of a few fumaroles fields at about a square kilometer at the height of 4850–4900 m above sea level.

Fairytale landscape

Some views of almost fairytale landscape are really interesting. There are about six differently interesting places just a short walk from each other on this geothermal field, so it's good to arrange a number of stops.

Bloody pond

Among mostly gray to blue volcanic lakes there is one unique – completely red.

Devil's pool

Some of the lakes almost invite you to try, but it is better to stay away even from the edge. There have already been several cases of seriously scalded tourists, when their leg fell into the pond.

Boiling mud

In some places the gas is bubbling up so strongly that small geysers are made.

Sulphurous hill

What would be a volcanic landscape without sulfur?

Inspirational wasteland

The surrounding of this place has its own special charm. It is clear that the Salvador Dali´s landscape is just nearby. Most tours stop here at Sol de Maňana only for 15–30 minutes. But it is absolutely sufficient particularly for those less acclimatized who already suffer from the mountain sickness.
