Uyuni is home to one of the most beautiful places on earth: The Salt Flats

The Uyuni Salt Flats in the southwest of Bolivia are the highlight of many visitors' trip to Bolivia. The Salt Flats are certain to leave you completely overwhelmed by its uniqueness, as they are one of the most beautiful places to visit on earth. 

The town of Uyuni doesn't offer much to see itself, but it still receives approximately 60,000 visitors each year who use the town as a getaway to get to the Salt Flats. When doing a Salt Flats tour, make sure that the Train Graveyard is included. This spot comprises a selection of a dozen of rusted out locomotives from back in the day when Uyuni was an important transportation hub. It is quite impressive, and you surely won't want to miss it.

The Area

Uyuni was founded in 1890 as a trading post and has now a population of 10,460 inhabitants. It lies on the edge of an extensive plain at an elevation of 3,700 m (12,139 ft) above sea level.

The town has extensive street markets, but it is best known for being close to Salar de Uyuni, which is the world’s biggest salt flats - a complete white sea with 12.000 km2 of salt.

Best Time To Go

Uyuni is good to visit all year round, but depending on the season (dry or not) the landscape at Salar de Uyuni will vary. Still, both seasons offer a unique perspective which makes your choice, a matter of personal preference.
