It is located in the Potosí and Oruro departments in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes, and is at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above mean sea level.The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes.
Salt Flats, Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia, South America. After travelling with a fellow Englishman across Southeast Asia in 2012, his adventure stories of South America enticed me. Particularly his heavenly experience of the Salt Flats of Bolivia.
