Bolivia’s blissfully beautiful salt flat sits at a lofty 11,995 feet and blankets an amazing area of 4,086 square miles. A prehistoric salt lake has turned into a traveler’s heaven by offering up the beauty that is South America’s most awe-inspiring landmark. I’m going to be honest here. Salar de Uyuni is a pain to get to, but it’s well worth the uncomfortable night’s sleep in exchange for these photos. I’d do it again and again to be able to spend a few minutes here in heaven.
Tip: During rainy season (January – April), a few inches of water lie on the ground, creating unbelievable reflection photos. Call it the world’s biggest mirror, call it heaven, call it beyond dreamy. Whatever it is, it’s pure magic.
