La Paz - Uyuni Salt Flats
From La Paz airport, one of the highest in the world, take a short flight to the new runway in Uyuni, gateway to the extraordinary Salar de Uyuni. At 12,000 square km's this is the largest salt flat in the world and situated in the high Bolivian Altiplano it is breathtaking in every sense of the word!
Crystal clear blues skies, perfect pentagons of crystalline salt, towering cacti and vibrant pink flamingos all make up this spectacular corner of Bolivia. At the centre of the salt flat lies Isla Pescado (fish island) covered in cacti. With the salt backdrop this is a photographers dream so as the sun drops behind the mountains enjoy a cold Pacena beer whilst admiring the myriad of colours.
Your hotel for this evening, Luna Salada, is made completely of salt - beds, walls, furniture - a surreal experience.
