Salar de Uyuni, Oruro and Potosí, Bolivia — Largest Salt Lake in the World

We leave our Europe planning for awhile as we take a visual tour of what the other parts of the world have to offer.

Salar de Uyuni

Salar de Uyuni (Salar de Tunupa), the world’s biggest salt flat, is located in Oruro and Potosí in southwest Bolivia (central South America). During the driest months, the lake solidifies into hexagonal tiles of salt.

When covered with water during the wetter seasons, the distinction between earth and sky blurs to create an illusion of seamless beauty.Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia, Carlos Adampol Galindo
