No worries, I just threw out Ollague as a back up just in case. I ended having to go there unexpectedly the second time I rode southern Bolivia b/c of some dumb shit I did.

I rode all the villages you listed and they are relatively easy to find. San Cristobal is on the big road b/w Uyuni and Ollague and has a proper gas station.

Here's the road b/w Villa Mar and Laguna Colorado. I'm heading SOUTH and the video ends north of Laguna CO at the turn off.

The big salar you see at the end is Culpina.

Just before this video I crossed a deep fucking river south of Villa Mar, in fact Villa Mar was cut in half by a river which I have a video of too.

I was there in early February and it was wet, in and out of thunderstorms all day.

It should be dry by now I would think.

A llama tries to commit suicide by SE at slightly less than half way.

Hi! I finished route Atacama-laguna Colorado (1st night)-villamar – san gristobal (2nd night) – uyuni couple of days back. Had a big fall first day. Just be careful with the soft sand that is piled cos’ of the 4x4s especially where the tracks meet. You will need a boat to cross laguna verde at this time. MiseryGoats map was easily good enough, you can’t really get badly lost there. Laguna Colorado is good place to sleep, but a bit close to Atacama (unless you have a fall like me:). DR was great the whole trip, eventhough I did broke her a bit when I fell. A lot of 4x4s going there so you are not totally alone. Later there are a lot of big rocks on the road, just take care when riding in the dust of the cars/trucks.
