Yes the views are impressive, but you need to rely on the people of Uyuni in order to get here. En masse they are incapable of a days work, and so advice is to plan a few extra days in case they protest/block roads. But...More

One of my favourites in the world! Absolute must see... Salt. Salt everywhere. And water if you're there the right time which gives endless reflection of the sky. Like you are hanged in space. Just go there.

It is really worth all the effort that it takes to come to that place. We did a 1 day tour with the company Expéditions Perla de Bolivia and loved it.
