Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

Ranked #1 in Bolivia tourism. Salar de Uyuni is the largest known salt flat in the world. At the first idea about salt flat as a sightseeing highlight could seem odd, but actually the landscape of Salar de Uyuni is something you will not be able to see and experience that often in a lifetime, since it occupies a significant area of 10 582 square kilometers.

Salar de Uyuni Attractions

The scenery there is really unique and some tourists even claim that, if you arrive in Salar de Uyuni during the dry season, the view will seem to have rather hallucinogenic effect. Also certainly visit the train cemetery (3 kilometers from Uyuni) where abandoned trains from 1940’s are just lying as evidence from the past.
