You have 3 days to have a unique visit in Salar de Uyuni, a must visit place whenever you are in Bolivia. The beauty and the amazing landscape are hard to capture it in camera, and even harder to put the experience in words, since it will leave you just amazed at the beauty of nature. The tour begins at the Uyuni or the Tupiza area. The six incredible areas to visit on your three day tours include.
The Uyuni train cemetery
The day one of your trip in Salar de uyuni is the train cemetery that is located about three kilometers outside of Uyuni. In the early 20th century, the town was used as a hub to transport minerals to the Pacific Ocean. In the 1940s, the mining industry collapsed which led to the trains being left in the desert to rot. The dozens of trains and railway carriages offer an unusual sight and are a playground for the child within. They make you bring out that childhood with you that you forgot along time, take as many photos as possible, and enjoy some child hood play with your travel group. (image by puihlein ).
