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.
