About Uyuni

Uyuni is a town in Bolivia, within the department of Potosí, situated in the southwest of the country. This region remains agriculturally undeveloped due to the scarcity and high salinity of water here. The city also serves as a commercial and transportation artery between Bolivia and Chile, with immigration bureaus and customs authorities found here. Well-known tourist attractions include the train cemetery and the Salar de Uyuni salt flats.

Popular Attractions in Uyuni

Isla del Pescado
4.7/5

Geological Sites
Cactus Island is a small island in the center of Uyuni Salt Lake. It is called Cactus Island because it is full of cactus, but this Spanish name means the island of fish, because it looks like a fish from a distance. A very special island, I can't help but think about how these towering cacti wandered here, and how to start such barbaric growth.
Laguna Hedionda
4.8/5

Lake
Lake Hedionda is located on the edge of the Salar de Uyuni and you can see many flamingos. The surface of Lake Hedionda is not very high. The lake is like a huge mirror, and the surrounding scenery is reflected in it. The air is fresh and the environment is pleasant, and it is a good place for a relaxing holiday.

Modern Architecture
Located in the middle of Salar de Uyuni, there is a salt-built hotel that can also be used as a bar. The locals built the salt hotel with the salt of the lake. In addition to the roof, windows and doors, the walls, beds, tables, chairs and other furniture are all made of salt. There are suites and sauna rooms in the hotel, as well as physiotherapy pools and massage rooms. In addition, there is a special rule against licking the walls.

Mountain
The Uturuncu volcano is a high peak of Bolivia, located at the southern end of the Uyuni Salt Lake, near the abandoned mining town of San Antonio. Here, you can see the thick smog erupting from the surface of the Uturuncu volcano and feel the shock of nature. In addition, you can also enjoy the salt marsh that looks like a mirror of the sky, the flamingo of the sassafras, and the snow-capped mountains.
