The highlight to any trip to Bolivia, the Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat covering an area of approximately 10,000 km at an altitude of 3,653 m.
Set in Bolivia’s remote southwest, the Uyuni Salt Flat offers travellers a unique experience with its solid white salt cap and no immediate evidence of flora and fauna.
3-day trips starting from Uyuni are popular amongst visitors who want to explore Isla Incahuasi (Fish Island) or Laguna Colorada. Overnight stays in a salt Hotel are also a great option when visiting the area.
During rainy season the salar becomes the world’s biggest mirror, an amazing experience to witness. The salar might be closed during wet season (December to March) due to flooding problems and some areas like the Fish Island cannot be visited because of water on the salar.
