Salar de Uyuni, Uyuni

(4.5/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web)
Perched atop a plateau 3,653 m (11,985 ft) above the sea, Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flats, simply boggle the mind. Dry, baked salt covers much of the plateau, while seasonal pools of water and rainbow-colored mineral lakes add to the bizarre scenery. Photographers feel like they've landed in heaven, with amazing photo opportunities at every turn. It's not just for serious photographers, either--the vast expanses of flat, white ground allow you to take perspective-bending photographs. Play Godzilla, crushing your friends under your giant boot, or pretend to be a parrot clutching on to your mate's shoulder.

  • I went during the rainy season. But the wind is terrible I don't know how far from the ground where a sky, clouds are fine in moderation, and sky reflecting water. Undo 14 hours over 二日, torimakurimashita, trick photography. Knows how to take a photo tour guide, very helpful.

  • Not to be missed! I recommend the 3 days ride by Salar and surroundings. Actually this region of Bolivia surprised too.

  • We visited the salar de Uyuni a week ago, a wonder ... we relied on an agency of uyuni "la cordillera travel" our driver Ephraim very professional and skillful, because it is not easy to visit the salar and the surroundings, there are no roads ... we crossed the salar remaining open-mouthed to the vast expanse, we stopped to eat at a restaurant typically made of salt , which is well worth seeing, then continuing we encountered the Incahuasi island with its expanse of cactus and at the end we took pictures in the mirror on the water of the salar ... everything perfect ... the Guide meals visits and especially the beauty of the place. I recommend it
