VIDEO: The jawdropping beauty of Uyuni in the rainy season
The Salar de Uyuni in Southern Bolivia is the world's largest salt pan. In the rainy season it is transformed into an enormous natural mirror which is every photographer's dream. Watch and enjoy...
It's been a while since we blogged about one of our newest and most exciting itineraries, but when this incredible video of Uyuni in the rainy season popped up, we knew we had to break the silence. Spanning a total area of more than 10,000km², the Salar de Uyuni near Potosi is one of the trippiest places you'll ever go, and this is ramped up a couple of notches between December and March, when the region receives most of its rain (January is usually the wettest month).
In addition to showcasing the natural marvel which is the salt flats in the rainy season, the video is also gives a really good visual summary of all the other aspects of a classic Uyuni itinerary. The only thing it doesn't show are the epic Airstream camper vans that most SA Expeditions guests choose to stay in.
