The largest salt flat on the planet is located in the southwest of Bolivia, very close to the cities of uyuni and Potosi. The attraction is about 12,000 km² in length and is at an altitude of 3,600 m.

The huge salt flat was formed in a long and slow process of evaporation from a huge lagoon that resulted in this exotic and unique landscape.

Most of the year the Salar is completely dry, however, in the rainy season (summer), you can be lucky to find it flooded, when this happens the salar becomes a kind of mirror, reflecting the entire landscape seen in the floor.
