Playa Blanca at 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above sea level, Salar de Uyuni, Potosí, Bolivia.

Near the crest of the Andes and is at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above sea level.

For a truly out-of-this-world travel destination, it’s hard to match the Salar de Uyuni.

 

One of the flattest places in the world, the 4,000-square-mile salt flats were formed by a prehistoric lake.

 

We traveled in 4×4 vehicles across the expanse of the salt flats to visit locally fashioned structures made entirely from bricks of salt. The salt flats are at their most spectacular after a rain, when water sitting atop the cemented salt acts like a mirror, perfectly reflecting the sky above.
