uyuni SALT FLATS - Full Day tourSPECIAL PROMOTION: from 40 USD
Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is considered one of the most extreme and remarkable places on the planet!
It was part of a prehistoric salt lake, Lago Minchín, which once covered most of southwest Bolivia. When it dried up, it left a couple of seasonal puddles and several salt pans, including Salar de Uyuni. The savage beauty of this vast salt desert makes it one of South America’s most awe-inspiring spectacles.
