Salt mirror Salar de Uni

Salar de Uyuni - a marsh, that is a dried-up salt lake. Salar de Uyuni is, the world's largest salt field of 10 582 km ². It is located in the south-west Bolivia, at an altitude of 3,650 m above sea level, near the foot of the Andes.

The thickness of the layer of salt is more than 10 meters in the center. In the dry season the salt is completely flat space, and in the rainy season is covered with a thin layer of saline water, becoming the world's largest mirror that creates stunningly beautiful image

Tourists are an unforgettable experience crossing the salt field in a car in the summer. During the summer season all looks very original - a clear blue sky and snow-white salt at the bottom. They end on the horizon - and it is difficult to understand where is the land ends and sky begins.
