I really liked this stop in our Uyuni tour. It was my first time to see a gayser close up. The gaysers and the fumes during the sunrise give a great opportunity for good pictures. Just take care to not to fall in one of them :)

The geysers are quite impressive. They were very active when we were there and I felt quite small next to them. It is a very nice stop during the tour. Do watch your steps and don't fall in the hot pools. Accidents have happened (even recently).

It was really cool although the smell of rotten eggs lingered in my nostrils for a while. But that's what you get for sticking your nose where it doesn't belong.

I'd have enjoyed this more if I wasn't suffering from altitude sickness. The smell of sulfur made me nauseous. Having seen geysers before I knew what to expect. There were a lot of bubbling pools but the water didn't shoot up high, maybe a few cm. If you've never seen geysers before it'll be really interesting.

Very nice place to walk around. Boiling mud, steam from the geyser, smells and different colors. Just watch out and don't fall in, there aren't any safety precautions.

Every tour for 3 day will drive you to this Geiser Sold de Manana. It is at about 5,000m plus sulphur smell so we did not stay long time there but okay to try to see the geyser.

Be very careful walking here as each hole is piping hot and can cause a serious burn if you fall into it. The smoke that come out is really hot and also have a chemical smell. It is recommend not to stay here longer than 20mins.

This is a stop and any and all tours but I personally found it be underwhelming. There is some steam coming out of the ground that is about it. Take a picture and move along quickly.

I went to these geysers with trepidation, having seen so many before. To my delight, this was easily the coolest and most impressive geyser bed I've ever seen! There were so many holes, bubbling much, dribbling steam, and you can weave right through them all! We stayed for about 30 minutes, and I was dying to stay longer to take... More
