The Uyuni Salt Flat is the largest and high salt desert in the world with 10 582 km². It is located at 3,650 meters above sea level in Bolivia southwest at Daniel Campos Province in Potosí. Within the highland region of the Andes mountain range.
This makes this endless white sheet that is the Uyuni Salt Flat to become confused with the sky on the distant horizon. The salt flat reflects the clouds when it is slightly covered with water. Especially between the months of January and March, in the rainy season.
The Uyuni salt flat is the largest lithium reserve in the world with 50-70% of the world’s lithium, and it also has significant amounts of potassium, boron, and magnesium. At Uyuni Salt Flat, the traditional method of salt extraction consists of forming small piles, so that the water evaporates and facilitates transport.
Surrounded by a crown of mountains, the thin layer of water that covers part of its surface produces beautiful reflections of clouds, peaks, and the odd mirage, as in any desert worth it’s salt.
The Uyuni Salt Flat is one of the main tourist destinations in Bolivia, visited by approximately 60,000 tourists each year. The best time to visit the Salar de Uyuni is November, the breeding month of the three species of elegant flamingos that live near the multiple lagoons of the place.
