SALAR DE UYUNI, POTOSÍ - BOLIVIA

This is the experience that the guys from "Bolivia Internacional" lived in the imposing "Salar de Uyuni". This place is the largest continuous and high salt desert in the world, with an area of 10,582 km.
 

Without a doubt, it is a spectacular place where you can see "the stairway to heaven", "the blocks of salt", "the water eyes", "the square of flags", "the Dakar monument", "The Incahuasi Island", among other places.

The Uyuni Salt Flats are one of the main tourist destinations in Bolivia, visited by approximately 300,000 tourists each year. In 2019 it was awarded by the World Travel Awards as the “Best Natural Tourist Attraction in South America”. One of its main attractions occurs in the month of November when it becomes the breeding place for three species of flamingos: the southern flamingo, the large parina, and the small parina. Giant cacti up to 10 m high are found on Incahuasi Island. This island is the largest of the group of islets located in the center of the Salar de Uyuni. It is also a tourist center inside the salar. 3,000-year-old mummies were discovered in a cavern on the edge of the salt flat.

Salar de Uyuni

Without a doubt, the Salar de Uyuni turns out to be another "Obligatory Stop" / "Must Do" that you have to do/know in Bolivia.
 

This place, apart from being impressive due to its dimensions and its striking and predominant white color, is a wonder that wakes us up and says goodbye every day with sunrises and sunsets that seem like they are from another planet.
