The Bolivian Salt Flats in Pictures

Sometimes it’s easier to just show you how amazing a place is rather than tell you about it. For that reason I thought I’d share with you some of my pictures from the last 4 days in the Bolivian Salt Flats. Whilst I hate describing places as ‘must see’ destinations, I think I will make an exception with this one. Please don’t miss out on this place if you ever come to Bolivia!

  3. […] Salar de Uyuni (in Bolivia) is honestly the most beautiful/photogenic place I have ever visited in my life. It is for that reason I had to enter it into this list after visiting for the first time around 6 weeks ago. The Salt Flats of Uyuni were in actual fact something of a surprise to me if I’m being honest. Salar de Uyuni, whilst a popular tourist spot on the backpacker trail in Bolivia, is not often mentioned as much as say other popular South American destinations like Machu Picchu or the waterfalls of Iguassu for example? And whilst I’m not saying those other places aren’t incredible places to visit too, it astounds me that Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is not mentioned up there alongside them in every single list too. I honestly couldn’t stop uttering the word “wow” every day that I spent there and as a bonus it was also incredibly cheap to visit at just 700 Bolivianos for 3 days (£62 / $101 / €74) including all accommodation, food, and transport.
