One of the most beautiful places on Earth is the Bolivia Salt Flats, or Salar de Uyuni, also known as the border between heaven and earth. The world’s largest salt flat is in the Daniel Campos Province in Potos, and is pretty much a paradise for photographer.
The dreamy cascading reflection over the salt flats shows a heaven-on-earth effect and one of the most stunning backdrops we’ve ever seen. Look, and put the spot to the top of your travel bucket list.
Plan your trip according to the experience you’re hoping to have – the best climate to visit is during July-October, but between March and April is the best time to see the world’s largest mirror.
Tourists can lodge in homes with peasant families without running water or electricity for only $15 a day-and outhouses can be used as bathrooms.
But they may join local activities such as the annual llama-shearing season in August, despite the loss of home comforts, or join llama caravans delivering salt blocks to remote villages in exchange for food and other products.
Although tourists have been visiting the area for a long time, it wasn’t until around five years ago that interest grew in extracting the 5.4 m tons of lithium found just below the salt surface.
The lithium in the area provides for half the world’s supply and is used in mobile phone and computer batteries.
A circuit Uyuni’s salt flats takes you through absolutely unforgettable, literally breathtaking landscapes and is the highlight of a visit by many people in Bolivia. There are plenty of options to choose from to suit time & budget possibilities for all kind of travelers, starting with a 1-day tour and ending with a 4-day tour for the curiousest travelers. Nonetheless, what connects all the tours is that they always spend at least one day on the edge of the salt flat, which is flooded with water creating a beautiful reflection. Thus, everybody gets the chance to visit the beautiful part of sea salt in Bolivia, which turns into a mirror.
