Salar de Uyuni - The World's Largest Salt Beds
The Salar de Uyuni (a vast salt desert up to 120 meters deep) is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Bolivia. Three million acres (12,000 square kilometers) of blinding white salt are were left behind millions of years ago by the receding Lake Minchín. It's vast and extremely flat expanse is enjoyed by tourists who like to play with the optical illusions the lack of horizon causes - super fun photo opportunities await you here. Located at over 3000 meters above sea level, it gets very very cold at night. You can stay at a hotel where everything right down to the furniture is made completely out of salt bricks.
