Salar de Uyuni | Bolivian surrealism

Imagine that above you there is a sky that so deeply blue it hurt your eyes and under your feet, there is crispy white salt as far as you can see. You could be dreaming (or as a Finn found it, in a frozen lake somewhere in Finland on a sunny winter day…) or in a Dali´s painting. It is maybe the most bizarre natural setting you can imagine.

In Bolivian Altiplano lies Salar de Uyuni, the world’s most largest salt flat in Bolivian Altiplano near the crest of the Andes at an elevation of 3,656 meters above sea level. Salar de Uyuni used to be a botton of a prehistoric lake or lakes.  There is even an island, Incahuasi, in the middle of all this surreal wonderland.
