"The Glimmer of Salt Crystals"
A salt flat is a natural salt pan formed due to natural processes in deserts. The largest salt flat in the world is Salar de Uyuni, also known as Salar de Tunupa, covering an area of 10 million square meters (107,639,104 square feet). This geological marvel dates back to approximately 25,000 years ago and is a sight to behold. The pure white salt crystals stretch for miles and shimmer brilliantly under the rays of the sun. Walking through the vast expanse of white minerals, inhaling the salty air, watching sharp reflections of people in the sea of salt - all of these things add up to a magical experience. Fluffy Cumulus clouds gather near the horizon and their clear reflections in the salt beds create a feeling like you have found paradise on earth. The 360 degree panoramic vista can bend your perceptions of dimensions and almost make you feel like you are floating in space. Situated amid the Andes mountain range, this salt pan also happens to be one of the highest in the world, at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,994.75 feet) from sea level.

Situated just outside the desert town of Uyuni is a popular tourist attraction known as Train Cemetery. As the name suggests, this is the home of several old, decommissioned trains that once plied through the country carrying carrying minerals from the mountains. Dusty, old and decaying engines and carriages lay abandoned in this wasteland of sorts, since the fall of the mining industry in the late 20th century.
