    I never planned to go to Bolivia, it was Peru that I really wanted to go to, but since I had bought quite an expensive ticket, “I may as well stay longer and explore another country,” I thought to myself. 30-odd countries later and Bolivia is still one of my top three destinations and Salar De Uyuni was a big highlight. I loved it so much and see that you did too. Thanks for the awesome photos and memories! 🙂

    We’re going to Bolivia in March, so I’m hoping it won’t be cold!
    Loved the photos!

    Hahah, the fart photo is epic! The entire journey sounds so much adventurous, every place is so unique and picturesque. Would love to visit Salar de Uyuni and Red Lagoon (just to spot the Flamingos) someday.

    Amazing pictures, amazing landscape! Laguna Verde looks awesome, somewhere I would love to go. And those fart smelling craters lol! It looks like you guys had a load of fun 🙂

    Aww I did this same route earlier this year & loved it! I had already spent some time at altitude so was lucky not to get sick, but it was still very cold! I loved the lagunas, so pretty – its a shame some people just do a day tour of the Salar, for me the Southern part of Bolivia was the highlight!

      I completely agree. I found the build up was perfect too because you enjoy all these great landscapes and then bam, you finish on the epic salt flats!

    Love this post, it brings back all the memories. It sounds like you guys did the exact same tour/trip as us, We absolutely loved it and it seems as though you did too (despite the altitude sickness). The hot springs were great and when we visited the abandoned village it snowed! Thanks for sharing.

    Eleven thousand square kilometers of salt sounds tremendous. And to top it up, an altitude of 3656 meters above sea level makes it sound adventurous. I certainly would like to mention that licking the wall to check if it’s actually made of salt or not, was certainly included in the adventure.

    The pictures you’ve posted look really amazing. The place is like an open invitation to those who are seekers of natural beauty. I particularly loved the “illusion” & “action” series of pictures. Also thrilled to see the flamingos.

    Thanks for sharing this marvelous experience.

      It was indeed necessary to confirm that the wall was made of salt! Haha! Thank you so much for your kind comments, we work hard on the photography side so it’s nice to get some positive feedback.
