Salar De Uyuni salt flat and lake

Salar de Uyuni (or Salar de Tunupa) is the world's largest salt flat. It is located in the Potosí and Oruro departments in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes. The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar. The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of pink flamingos.
