High-altitude salt flats
Salar de Uyuni and the southern deserts image

Towards the south-western tip of the country, bordering Chile and Argentina, is some of Bolivia’s most captivating scenery. This is an area of barren landscapes, distant mountains and tiny colonial towns under huge aqua-blue skies. The highlight is the Salar de Uyuni, a dazzling salt lake of white hexagonal salt crystals stretching out to the horizon. Almost as impressive are the bizarre rock formations and high-altitude lakes which border Chile and the multicoloured canyons of Tupiza further south.
