Uyuni Salt Flat

Stretching across 10,582 square kilometres of the Altiplano, Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat, and seeing it in person is the only way to properly comprehend that fact. Despite the desert dryness, freezing night temperatures, and fierce desert sun — this landscape is not devoid of life! Pink flamingos, ancient cacti, and rare hummingbirds all live in the Salar de Uyuni, adding a dramatic splash of life in an otherwise desolate landscape and making it one of the best things to do in Bolivia. Spoiler alert: Pink flamingos look pretty damn unreal against an all-white landscape.

The world's largest salt flat (and a breeding area for flamingos!), this vast, scenic spot is famous for its stark white salt and giant mirror effect.

I’d say this is the place that put Bolivia on my radar and where I was most looking forward to visit. Of course the salt flats are the biggest draw but there are other things on offer here too; volcano tours and the Atacama Desert are just two of those options. Take youre time at the salt flats to get the photos just right because they turn out awesome, make sure you do your research or ask your guide for tips. Head to Piedra Blanca Backpackers Hostel if you’re looking for a good night’s sleep, great location and breakfast thrown in for $12.
