Located in southwest Bolivia, Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat, giving off a hallucinogenic white landscape during the dry season and a perfect reflection of the sky during the wet season (as pictured below).
The best way to experience the Salar is to travel with a tour group, with a driver who knows how to navigate the 10,000 km region and can highlight turquoise lakes, psychedelic rock formations and the best restaurants and hotels. However, if you’re on a budget, a grand adventure here can still be had: catch a local bus in Uyuni to Colchani and ask to be let off at the salt flats, which are free to hike through and explore.
Bring coins and small bills for the bathrooms, as well as sunglasses, sunblock and a hat, as the salt flats are blinding with no atmosphere to block the sun’s rays. Temperatures also turn to freezing at night, so warm clothes and a hot water bottle are recommended. And of course, don’t forget your camera!
