Salt Flats

After visiting Sucre we headed to the Salar de Uyuni salt flat, the largest salt flat in the world. Leaving from Uyuni we went on a 3 day tour of the flats and the surrounding mountains. The salt flats are described by many as other worldly, and they are just that. The expansive crystal white salt reaches meters deep and covers an enormous underground lake. The flat itself lies next to the andes mountain range and due to elevation is freezing cold during the night and searingly hot in the sun during the day.

A hotel we stayed at made entirely of salt bricks.
