Package Itinerary

Uyuni is one of the most important salt reserves worldwide. Uyuni and other salt flats nearby originated around 10,000 years ago. They are the last geological stage of a huge lake that once covered 7,800 sq. miles. This salt lake is also part of an ancient drainage system of the Titicaca and Poopó lakes in southwest Bolivia.

The surreal scenery and unforgettable wildlife make this salt lake one of the natural wonders of Bolivia, without doubt, the most photographed attraction in Bolivia. It has a long history of human occupation from pre-Columbian cultures, the Incas, and the Spanish. The local people still breed alpacas, llamas, and fine vicuñas.
