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.

  • On the plane ride, night bus La Paz 14 hours (half dirt road), where you can go to run, and so became raging here have visited in the dry season the big expectations went on a tour of the stunning reflections seen in the photo. But the tour guide guide for the cold water to the extent where the contrary was able to see the landscape of the milk, the sunset and watch the very first look at azure. And then when it came back at night and at one point clouds, no stars tour, Moonlight pours over your head without having really good condition rated and was able to see the milky way. It really was a place to leave a lifetime unforgettable experience, I wish once more to see ... Yes, I would like if I can heh

  • One of the most inhospitable and beautiful places on the planet. Has many attractions besides the salar itself, such as graveyards, Islands, lakes, mountains, Cactus, monoliths, geysers and hot springs. Can be known in one to three days tours ranging from the city of Uyuni the border with Chile and vice versa.
