Isla Incahuasi, Uyuni

4.5
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.

  • This very pretty 'island' that belongs to the world of prehistory, is covered with rocks of fossilized bacteria and cactus, currently in bloom. A marvel. We can have lunch in a unique setting.

  • Great tour! Essential, amazing, if you're lucky there will be no wind. Made for all.

  • It is certainly useful on the part of a protection policy that this one of about 20 Islands in the Salar de Uyuni has been chosen to serve the influx of tourists - but she will thus not attractive. It is significant that on the google satellite pictures the lanes in the salar run all on Isla Incahuasi, and even "parking Isla Incahuasi" is entered on its western shore on the same image. In reality, sometimes up to 50 cars from tour operators stand at the same time. Then visit to the island is really no longer pleasantly and one is inclined to look for another island that has similar environmental characteristics. And she actually exist in the salar. But ultimately, it's probably a good thing, as it is: Dear one of the Islands increasingly maltreat as all a bit! And also this one carries an impressive Cactus vegetation in the gossip-white environment...
