Salar de Uyuni, Uyuni

4.9
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. Using our custom trip planner, Uyuni attractions like Salar de Uyuni can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
