Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats. Shorter and off the beaten path.

You have seen all the photos and now it's your turn to experience the magic!  Traveling the normal route, you will be in a caravan of 4x4 jeeps that are all going to the same place at the same time.  NOT with us!  We offer an off the beaten track tour where you will be the lone travelers at times.  We will see the main sights in reverse of the normal tours, so we may still see other tourists, but we will be making our own way at our own pace!  Amazing! Did you know? Salar de Uyuni (or Salar de Tunupa)[1] is the world's largest salt flat at 10 582 square kilometers (4 086 sq mi). It is in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes and is at an elevation of 3 656 meters (11 995 ft) above sea level.[2] The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average elevation variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar. The crust serves as a source of salt and covers a pool of brine, which is exceptionally rich in lithium. It contains 50 % to 70 % of the world's known lithium reserves,[3] which is in the process of being extracted. The large area, clear skies, and exceptional flatness of the surface make the Salar an ideal object for calibrating the altimeters of Earth observation satellites. The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of flamingos. Salar de Uyuni is also a climatological transitional zone since the towering tropical cumulus and cumulonimbus incus clouds that form in the eastern part of the salt flat during the summer cannot permeate beyond its drier western edges, near the Chilean border and the Atacama Desert.
