VC104 Trip to Visit
San Pedro de Atacama and Uyuni Salt Flat
UYUNI, is one of the most important salt reserves worldwide. Uyuni
and other salt flats nearby originated around 10,000 years
ago. They are the last geological stage of a huge lake that
once covered 7,800 sq. miles. This salt lake is also part
of an ancient drainage system of the Titicaca and Poopó
lakes in southwest Bolivia. The surreal scenery and unforgettable
wildlife make this salt lake one of the natural wonders of
Bolivia, without doubt the most photographed attraction in
Bolivia. It has a long history of human occupation from pre-Columbian
cultures, the Incas, and the Spanish. The local people still
breed alpacas, llamas and fine vicuñas.
