Isla Incahuasi, Uyuni

4.6
#2 of 94 in Parks in Bolivia
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.

  • Definitely one of the best visual of the salar, a different and unique perspective delivers this island in the middle of the salar

  • In the middle of Salar de Uyuni Salt flat is the ' island ' Incahuasi. On this island you will find huge cactuses and you can stroll around the island. The view at the top is fenomaal. Only salt flat as far as you look around you. This stopover was part of a three-day 4WD safari from the Chilean border to Uyuni. Definitely recommended!! Please note: sunglasses and sunblock are necessary!!

  • After several kilometers of desert of salt you arrive on this island where centuries-old cactus grows. It is possible to restore, drink, toilets are immaculate. Very photogenic place, don't forget the sunglasses.

  • I spent the early morning of my bday last week in the place, I saw the sunrise and did a bit of meditation there. What a experience!!! Beautiful place and great atmosphere around. I’ve never seen something similar anywhere else. Just amazing!! Amazing!! I’d recommend for sure! It was great start my new year with this gift of pachamama.
  • 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!
