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.

Salar de Uyuni

Lake

Salar de Uyuni is known as the “Mirror of the Heavens” and is located in Bolivia. During the rainy season from December to February each year, the hard and dry salt flat is covered with water, becoming like a mirror and reflecting the blue sky during the day. It is both magical and unique. At sunrise and sunset, both the sky and the earth turn red; it is a spectacular sight. On a clear night, while staying in a hotel constructed from salt blocks, waiting for the starry sky, you can watch the salt flat reflect the stars; it's like you are floating in the middle of the mysterious universe.

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.

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.

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.
