In the South Eastern part of Bolivia lies the greatest Salt Flat in the World, with an area of 10.582 Km2. Like a great sea caressed by the southern winds, the infinite whiteness of the salt flat merges with the dark blue sky found only in the high altitudes to produce wondrous mirages that may elicit transcendental revelations for some, or merely joyous and playful sensations for others.
Also, at night, amidst the wide horizon of the perfect flatness of the Altiplano (High Plateau) where the flats are located, one may observe the stars unlike any other place, and bask in the glory of the Southern Cross. Uyuni is regarded as the best star gazing destination in South- America.
While visiting the Salt Flats one will be amazed by the natural wonders: landscapes, flora and fauna as well as the native villages and what they have to offer visitors.

Colchani.- This village lies at the shores of the Great Salt Flat, and is the basecamp for visiting them. One may lodge at one of the Salt Hotels in the village, made and furnished entirely of that material. One may also learn about the rudimentary salt extraction process that most of the population makes a living from.

Incahuasi Island.- Is an island on the Salt Flats populated mainly by giant Cactus. It is made of the remains of a volcano, from petrified lava. It is an extraordinary lookout place to view the Salt Flats from, and excellent for photographers because of the awesome views it offers.

National Reserve of Andean Fauna “Eduardo Avaroa” (REA).- South of the Salt Flats is this National Reserve which besides the local fauna, has an enormous diversity of Andean Flora, some extraordinary lagoons with unusual colors (green and red), geysers and geothermal pools with surprising shapes.
Petrified Forest.- Is a group of rock formations whose shape and form are due to aelic evolution creating surreal landscapes.

Red Lagoon.- Is a multicolor lagoon where red predominates due to zooplancton sediments, which makes for the red coloration that so greatly contrasts with the surroundings, creating marvelous light effects. Here live more than 30,000 flamingos of three different species. Also the lagoon is home to the largest population of Small Parihuana (phoenicoparrus andinus) in South America.
Sunrise Geysers and natural hot-springs.- In this place we find geysers, intermittent fountains of water that sprout at a temperature of 90° C, crevices where one may observe volcanic lava flowing, and hot springs to relax in.
Green Lagoon.- Is found at the feet of the Licancabur volcano. It´s extraordinary colour is due to the high magnesium content that washes into the water from the surrounding rock formations.
