Salar de Uyuni (2D/1N)

Description

Salar de Uyuni (2D/1N)

The Salar de Uyuni is probably one of the most popular tourist attractions in Bolivia. They are the world's largest salt flats at 10,582 square kilometres. They are located in the south-west of Bolivia at more than 3,600 meters above sea level.

In the middle of the area is a layer of ten meters thick. It is a paradise for photographers. The reflection, the uniform background, the elongated shadows, the bright light. It might even be one of the most magical areas on earth.

The temperatures during this trip will vary intensely due to high altitudes, strong sun and extreme landscapes. So make sure you are well prepared, pack appropriate clothes, quality sunglasses, sunblock, a hat, and good humor to stay positive! It is an exhausting tour, but definitely worth it.
