Bolivia: Uyuni salt flats

In the remote bleak southern plains of the altiplano, at 3,656m, the visually stunning Salar de Uyuni salt lake stretches as a blinding white sheet of surreal, ethereal beauty. It is embossed with hexagonal patterns which look to be carved by man. In the rains it is covered with mirror-like surface water reflecting faithfully the ice blue sky and clouds, dissolving the horizon. Nearby are two vividly coloured lakes, Laguna Colorada and Laguna Verde, their gemstone hues created by their high mineral content. The red lake is next to hissing geysers, while the green one sits at the foot of the 5,920m Licancabur volcano.

What our experts say

An overnight in the middle of the salar (salt flats) is a unique experience.  I have been to Uyuni many times over the years but I had never experienced it so closely.  Being on your own in the middle of the salt pan on a clear night with stars falling from the sky is quite something.  It felt like I was discovering the secrets of Uyuni, it's peaceful enough during the day but at night everything is so still, it makes it truly magical.
