Places I Want To Visit Before I Die - Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

The largest salt flat in the world is located here in Salar de Uyuni, right at the crest of the Andes Mountains in southern Bolivia. During the rainy season, the water settles on to the salt flat, turning it into one gigantic mirror, creating the "infinity effect". The area also features some very unique architecture, including a number of hotels that are built entirely out of salt blocks from the flat.
