My friend recently told me about Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. It’s the world’s largest salt flat. Looking at these pictures and videos, it’s definitely on my list of places to visit! As my friend puts it, it’s literally “heaven on earth”.

From what I read, the landscape is ever changing and when it rains, the ground mirrors the sky. What a Pirates of the Carribbean 3 moment!

1. Tour Costs: Tours generally cost about $55- 80 for 4 days tours (includes food and housing). For that price, expect the housing accomedations to be very minimal.

2. Some places to see within the desert (source):

  • Salar de Uyuni - Uyuni's salt desert (salar), the biggest salt desert in the world.
  • Laguna Colorada - a red lagoon with a large flamingo population.
  • Laguna Verde - a green lagoon situated beneath a perfect shaped white-peeked volcano. Sometimes the wind changes the water to an amazing turquoise color.
  • Sol de Manana - geyser and bubbling mud pools area.

Doesn't that all sound AMAZING??!?!?!!?

(thanks Tae for the great tip!)
