Andes Mountains in Bolivia
Lakes, Salt Flats and Mountains in the Bolivian Andes
The salt flats in Bolivia are a perfect launching point to explore the Andes Mountains. There are an uncountable number of lakes in the high mountains full of unusual landscapes.
Starting off in Uyuni, you can take a muti-day tour of the Salar de Uyuni – the Bolivian Salt Flats. You will of course see the major flat, but there are many others which the tour will take you to see. In addition to the dried-up lakes, you will see some that are still intact. And some of them support a community of flamingos and other exotic birds.

The Bolivians are a clever and resourceful people, and it is a credit to their character to how they can survive in such an extreme part of the world. During your tour, you will likely stay in hostels built entirely of salt!
