Description

Explore the famous Uyuni Salt Flats on a Jeep tour from Uyuni. Ride along the expansive salt flats, visit the abandoned trains at the train cemetery, and see a hotel made entirely of salt, and more en route. Enjoy a local lunch, too. After your hotel pickup, head out to the iconic train cemetery, where all trains ended up once the local railroad company went out of business. Walk in and out of abandoned carriages, see leftover railroads, and more. Then, go to the town of Colchani on the outskirts of the salt flats. This small town survives from the sale of salt souvenirs and hand woven textiles. Locals also extract salt and process it for consumption - a process you can observe. Afterwards, enter the salt flats and drive towards the first salt hotel ever built. It no longer serves as a hotel but you can still see it standing proud, with its crystalline white walls, tables, and chairs - all made out of salt. Then, head to the Incahuasi, or Fish Island, where giant cacti grow up to 12 meters tall. Enjoy lunch here before trying your hand at snapping those iconic distance and size perception pictures on the salt flats. Finally, head back to Uyuni.
