Salar de Uyuni, Uyuni
(4.5/5 based on 4,200+ 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.

  • It is a unique and impressive place, you should visit at least once in life. It is important to take the tour with a company with good references. I personally took the 2-day tour from La Paz and it was offered: Guide, transportation, food and accommodation was very good, much better than what had previously read about this type of tours. The company in Uyuni is called Full tours. You should use sunscreen, hat and sunglasses because the sun beats strong. Part is the quality of the services offered in the town of Uyuni, these are not yet well developed.
