  • Like many other stops on the laps of 3 days 2 nights, we stop this place where we can observe several rocks from previous volcanic eruptions are placed here in the desert :-) To make beautiful pictures!

  • Worth a trip, are rock formations "sculpted" by wind and rain, some gigantic. There are several that can scale pictures. Caught my eye the length of this "mountain range" carved, is seen along the road towards Uyuni.

  • It is incredible to see it, and still see that this Valley "has no end" (you Miras to the horizon and it continues...)

Where to stay in Uyuni

Accommodations seem to occupy nearly every other building in Uyuni. Where you stay is of little importance, as the town can be traversed on foot in a matter of minutes. You won't find large luxury hotels here, but you can choose between a range of comfortable inns and guesthouses. Reserve your room in advance, as competition for good rooms can be stiff during high season.
