Overview

Walk in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes on a pale endless ground, sometimes above the clouds. The infinite white under my feet is only interrupted when it attacks the blue of the sky, in the distance of an endless and continuous horizon. Among so much immensity, solitude is absolute and silence, total. A seagull flies over my head, only to realize that I am standing on a thin layer of water that reflects everything around me. I walk above the clouds.

Highlights

The Salar de Uyuni is the largest continuous and high salt desert in the world, with an area of 10,582 km². It is located at about 3,650 meters above sea level in the southwest of Bolivia, in the province of Daniel Campos, in the department of Potosí, within the altiplanic region of the Andes mountain range.
