Il faut une demi heure pour arriver au fond du cratère et 1 heure pour remonter. Le sentier le long des flancs du volcan est pierreux, difficile, c'est un chemin de chèvres. Il faut donc une certaine ... more »It takes half an hour to get to the bottom of the crater and 1 hour to get back up. The trail along the flanks of the volcano is stony, difficult, it is a goat path. It therefore requires a certain physical condition but feasible for a walker. And you won't be alone. Locals will offer their services to help you, to hydrate you. Do not agree to ride on the back of a donkey, it does not help, on the contrary. The stone blocks are sometimes very high. You have to do it on foot, with a walking stick. The result is worth it. In the centre of the water point, piles of 4 to 5 meters are trapped in the mud. Using this wood, the men probe the bottom of the lake, the spade, and use it to sink 3 meters below the surface, collecting a blackish clay cluster. With the sun, the skin of the diver dries, all trails of salt. His eyes are still tingling, but nothing to do, you have to go back to the bath. In the absence of buyers, the salt is cleaned. The mud is crushed, crumbled, then cleaned to extract a coarsely white salt. After a day of collection, these proud workers have to load the donkeys and climb the side of the volcano, thinking that the surroundings are waiting for their salt.
Schon die Ansicht des Kraters ist echt krass, mutiger dann noch hinunter zu steigen. Der Aufstieg ist bei weit über 30 Grad echt heiß. Vermittelt einen guten Eindruck wie schwer mit Salz Geld verdient... more »Even the view of the crater is really stark, bolder then to descend. The ascent is really hot at well over 30 degrees. Gives a good impression of how hard it is to make money from salt.
