Something not right?

Description

20 kms northwest of Ihla Inca Huasi. Fantastic spot for rough camping. During the day maybe 2 or 3 tour-cars stop by but during the evening we had the place to ourselves.

Wind was blowing in every direction. We chose a spot on the east of the island for photographing the milky way in the middle of the night. Too windy for our RTT until 9pm, so we catnapped in the car until then. No other cars at the idland, saw maybe two others drive by in the early evening. There was a more sheltered area near a cave, but it was on the west side, so it wasn't a good spot for photography as the island would have blocked the milky way arch. Glad we did it, definitely a singular experience. But the wind was no joke.

Great spot to camp if you want to be on “land”. Hike starts here following the sandy stuff up to the summit. 3 tour trucks showed up at 9am and we hiked with the group.

Perfect quiet camping spot, beautifull view from the top of the island. The island has many little inlets and bays were you can find a place to camp depending on the direction of the wind / the amount of water on the salar.

In current situation the island is accessible from all angles as it's still very dry, so easy to find a good spot!

Spend here two super quiet nights, not much wind either. Parking on „the beach“, safe (no water) to drive onto the island in October

Camped on the west side. Beautiful sunset. No wind and not really muddy. We just lost a bit of power when the salt looked like sand but it was ok. Quiet night. We had -2 at night.

We really loved it and spend two nights here. We saw only one car passing by in those 2 days. We were parked at the south-west side of the island but you can park almost anywhere. BUT not everywhere when you have a 2wd because when we wanted to leave we came to close to the beach and got stuck real bad. The surface looks hard and frozen but its only the top layer beneath it is al very soft mud. When walking (cause the phonenumbers we had didnt work)
for help to Incahuasi (20km) after a hour luckely a 4wd car with really nice people came by and towed us out:))

DO NOT TRY AND PARK OFF THE SALT NEAR THE ISLAND! We did and got stuck in the mud for 24 hours before we managed to get towed out. It turned out that there were the signs of 6 others who had got stuck as well where we were. This was on the east side of the island facing Incahuasi...
