Isla Incahuasi, Uyuni

4.6
An otherworldly island seemingly out of place in the middle of the salt flats, Isla Incahuasi represents the primary destination for most organized tours to the flats. From the hilly island, you can view the vastness of the salt flats all around you, stretching as far as you can see. Cacti cover the 24 hectare (61 acre) island, and you'll also find a tourist center catering to the many visitors who gather here every day. Make the 15-minute climb to the top of the hill for an even more awe-inspiring view of this supernatural landscape.

  • Isla Incahuasi (or "Isla Del Pescado"), is a magnificent place. A rock formation which although not very high, is impressive, due to the location, and the way he stands out in the vastness of white salt flat. Giant cacti, ancient formations and various forms, help to complete the surreal scenario. It is worth climbing to the top of Isla, to view any site, and if you have a real idea of your size and beauty. This is another of the treasures that the Salar presents us, to walk by him.

  • Great website... Very interesting and educational. Makes me want to go there...!!
  • We enjoyed this. We paid to go in and it as a short bit of a hike to get to the top. Some people were winded. It's in the middle of no where and incredible. I say pay- it supports the people who live there. We met some other kids that just walked around it to find the cactus on the out rim that looked like a mans XXXX. They said they found it. That was their priority :p
  • Incredible place to visit (most good tours will stop here). However, the bs. 30 entrance fee is probably much too high for the experience. Still, we managed to get some great pictures overlooking the Salt Flats.
  • It's awesome location inside a big salt lake!
  • Cactus island. Beautiful place.
