: The magnificent Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat with an area of 12,000 km2. It is located at an altitude of 3,656 m (11,995ft) above sea level in the Andes Mountains of southwest Bolivia. The natural beauty of this place, its endless horizons and the reflection of light on its surface attracts hundreds of visitors each year, making it one of the most visited places in Bolivia.
The surface is a source of salt from which 25,000 tons are extracted each year. The crust also covers a pool of brine which is exceptionally rich in lithium, making the site one of the biggest sources of lithium in the world. Moreover important quantities of potassium, boron and magnesium are also found in the Salar.
Now witness the magic of this place. This and much more await you in Bolivia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncbwb7xds0Y
