Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat which spreads on the surface of more than 4000 sq miles and is located almost 12000 ft above the sea level. Why is it so famous? Well, its popularity is associated with the “mirror effect” which you may observe from December to March. This effect occurs during the raining season, and then, you may experience the illusion of walking on the clouds. If you’re going to visit Salar de Uyuni during others months or you’re still hungry for more adventures, it should be mentioned that you can visit nearby an antique “train cemetery” or the museum made entirely from the salt.

Salar de Uyuni is located close to Andes mountains and the border with Chile. Observe wild flamingos, enjoy the view of giant cactus and necessarily don’t forget about your camera and take wonderful photos like from heaven or another planet.
