Salar de Uyuni, Uyuni

(4.5/5 based on 4,600+ 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.

  • Starting at the rainy season and new moon. Hotel for 2 days stays out of the first day flight is delayed apply for private tours, around 17:00 Salt Lake arrived. It is windy, but nice. Then 18:00 half-time from the torrential rains. I sign up for Sunrise tour from late-night stop. Join tours from 10 a.m. the next day. Even cars get stuck because the road was muddy due to heavy rains the day before, but managed to arrive. After rain had bubbles on the surface of the Lake disappears until the time such as, driver's are foam not nice places over time, was looking for. Results showed a beautiful mirrored. Second day at night because of the rain, long-awaited new moon was gone, Starlight and sunrise. Ultraviolet rays are stronger than expected, so caution is required.
