You might get a kick out of the thought that none of your friends will have done this before. That’s because Kachi Lodge is the first permanent property to open in this vast and largely undiscovered region. Opened just a few weeks ago, not far from the Tunupa Volcano and in the middle of absolutely nowhere, the adventurelodge follows its singular location’s lead, not only with activities that force you to experience its ethereal landscapes in totally foreign ways, but also with its six geodesic, habitable domes, otherworldly as they are and almost entirely clear to make sure your eyes are always on the scenery (except for when your guide instructs you otherwise, of course).
That your domicile is fairly bizarre is only appropriate in these parts. Inside, however, Kachi is quite luxurious, with cuisine by the chefs of Bolivia’s Gustu (a repeat winner on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list) and original artwork by Gastón Ugalde (who has
been unironically called the Andean Warhol). And those strange bubbles are surprisingly a rather nice place to rest, too, draped in local textiles and stocked with Bolivian chocolate bars sprinkled with a pinch of crystalline white from the flats just outside.
