What Is The Best Time To Visit Uyuni Salt Flats?

Are there Salt Flats in Bolivia?

Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni is considered one of the most extreme and remarkable vistas in all of South America, if not Earth. Stretching more than 4,050 square miles of the Altiplano, it is the world's largest salt flat, left behind by prehistoric lakes evaporated long ago.

How long is the salt flats in Bolivia?

Salar de Uyuni's surface is 10.5 km long (more than 4,000 miles) and its altitude is more than 3,500m (12,000 feet) above sea level! The best (if not only) way to see it is to take a 4WD tour with 5-6 other people in a car.

How long do you need in Bolivia?

So really if you want to combine the 2 countries, I recommend you to plan at least 3 weeks and limit yourself to regions that are not too far from each other. An idea for a 3-week itinerary could be: Arriving in La Paz (3 days), then a night bus to Uyuni. Visit of Uyuni, the salar and the south lipez, 4 days.
