Salar De Uyuni is located in southwest Bolivia. It is the biggest salt flat in the world, which stretches for 4,086 sq mi (10,582 sq km).
The salt desert used to be covered with water. Several prehistoric lakes were lying here. After a long time however, the lakes have disappeared, uncovering this amazing spot.
The area which is covered with a few meters salt crust is extraordinarily flat. Due to this and clear air, as well as low humidity, Salar De Uyuni is perfect for satellite calibration.
The unusual spot attracts tourists from all around the world. Some hotels are built entirely with salt blocks.
