Emptiness surrounds the desert outpost of Uyuni, the gateway to the world's largest salt flats. Life can be challenging in the arid town of around 10,000 people, formed as a trading post in 1890 and located 3,700 m (12,139 ft) above sea level. The difficulty of getting fresh water to the area has made agriculture almost impossible, but a boom in Uyuni tourism has kept the town going--and growing. Use our Bolivia trip planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Uyuni.
