Uyuni Salt Flat

Potosi, Bolivia

WHITE DESERTS, COLORFUL LAGOONS: To the Southeast of Potosí, with a surface of 10.582 Km2. and a height of 3.653m, one finds the largest salt resources in the world. It has a reserve of 9 million tons of lithium and other minerals, which have given way to the creation of the Red, Green, Yellow and Blue lagoons. This semi-desert, volcanic region houses important economic resources and landscapes of an extraordinary natural beauty; such as the spectacular geysers, rock formations and volcanic wells, all of which transport the visitor to the time of Earth’s creation.

UYUNI TOWN: A place in which you find the intriguing “Train Cemetery”, featuring the most important remains of railroad technology which date back to the year 1890.

COLCHANI: Also known as “Puerto Seco” (Dry Port), it represents the main access to the Saline Crust because it sits on the shores of the Great Salt Flat. Here one can observe the intense salt mining activity on a day to- day basis.
