Words fail to describe the beauty and otherworldliness of the Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. A vast, flat, white desert, the Salar reminds visitors of the surface of the moon, a landscape totally unlike any other that most travelers have ever experienced. The Salar, or salt flat, stretches more than 12,000 square kilometers, the flat bed of an enormous, ancient lake that used to cover this whole region. The Salar de Uyuni is dotted with islands of fossilized coral, which provide viewpoints for travelers to really appreciate the Salar’s vastness and meditate on its beauty. Whether it is their first time here or their tenth, visitors are never disappointed. This lunar landscape stuns even the most jaded traveler.
