Tour Salar De Uyuni (ATACAMA)

Highlights
Salar de Uyuni (or Salar de Tunupa) is the world's largest salt flat at 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi). It is located in the Potosí and Oruro departments in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes and is at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above mean sea level.
The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar. The crust serves as a source of salt and covers a pool of brine, which is exceptionally rich in lithium. It contains 50 to 70% of the world's lithium reserves, which is in the process of being extracted. The large area, clear skies, and the exceptional flatness of the surface make the Salar an ideal object for calibrating the altimeters of Earth observation satellites.
The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of pink flamingos. Salar de Uyuni is also a climatological transitional zone since the towering tropical cumulus congestus and cumulus incus clouds that form in the eastern part of the salt flat during the summer cannot permeate beyond its drier western edges, near the Chilean border and the Atacama Desert.

The best tour i ever taken

Honestly no place in the world compares with the landscapes of Uyuni and all the area you visit in the 4 day tour from San pedro de Atacama to Uyuni. Let´s say you see different lakes, antrophological sites, salt lakes, geisers and the less inhabited place on earth. everyone who loves travelling should visit it! I ultra recommend it. I forgot to mention the night skies full of stars and that you sleep in salt hotels:) What else do you need in order to decide doing such an amazing trip in chile and Bolivia?
