Salar de Uyuni is a place for discovery – a place where travelers' hearts let go of convenience and luxury, satisfying their desire to be in true isolation.
A trip to this South American delight will be intense, cold, hot, salty, high, and exhausting – but it will smash you right in the face with the most stunning vistas that'll remain in your memories forever.
At 3,656m above sea level, Salar de Uyuni stretches its glistening white salt in beautiful patterns, with an endless horizon during the dry months late April/early May, until October when the rainy season creates a spectacular, endless-mirror-like effect.
With all its landscapes and surprises, this place is impossible to describe. It can only be understood by experience.
