Salar de Uyuni

Our first meal on the Bolivian salt flats.


At 12,000 square km and 3650 m high, Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest and highest salt flat. It was originally part Lago Minchín, a prehistoric salt lake. As it dried it left a few small lakes and several salt pans of which Salar de Uyuni is the largest. This is a typical view across the flats.
