Salar de Uyuni, Southwest Bolivia.
Have you ever had those weird dreams where you’re stuck in limbo and you can’t work out where the sky ends and the ground begins?
Well if you haven’t, this is what it feels/looks like.
And believe it or not, this place actually exists.
This remarkable landscape (known as the Salar de Uyuni) is in fact the world’s largest Salt Flat and is located in Southwest Bolivia.
16,000 years ago a lake covered the area, when it dried up it left behind a 4,000-square-mile basin of salt and created this masterpiece. Why would people travel to the other side of the world to see a massive patch of salt? Well during the wet season the water from the rain creates the world’s largest mirror, reflecting the sky above creating the illusion of walking on thin air.
Imagine. You can see the sky and clouds beneath your feet.
Add it to the list Friends.
