UYUNI

Uyuni is a city in the southwest of Bolivia. Uyuni primarily serves as a gateway for tourists visiting the world’s largest salt flats, the nearby Uyuni salt flat. Each year the city receives approximately 60,000 visitors from around the globe

  • Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat. It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desertlike, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations and cacti-studded islands. Its otherworldly expanse can be observed from central Incahuasi Island. Though wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, it harbors many pink flamingos.

    Transfer from Jirira to Red Lagoon: covering 60 square kilometers at an altitude of 4278 m, its beauty takes one’s breath away. Its waters are reddish, and it is home to flocks of pink-feathered tokokoo flamingos; the similarly pink jututu and chururu, whose plumage is almost white. The birds’ synchronized movements seem like an improvised ballet that you can watch for hours. Vicuñas, llamas and vizcachas can also be seen here.

    Then a visit to the Sol de Mañana geyser, fumaroles and volcanic pools that form a spectacular sight in the strong wind that gives the visit seem more of an adventure. This area covers 1 square kilometer and is on the road to Salar de Chalviri salt flats.
