Salt Flats, Colchani

Written on: Sunday August 5th, 2007

A journal entry from: Bolivia, Peru, and the Galapagos!

Our first stop on the Southwest Circuit was the town of Colchani which is just a short drive on a dirt road from Uyuni and located on the edge of Salar de Uyuni (Uyuni Salt Flat). The residents of Colchani make a living by scraping salt off the salt flats and selling it. The Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt flat in the world and was quite spectacular to view.
