El Salar de Uyuni es el desierto de sal más grande del mundo, cubre más de 4,000 millas cuadradas (10,582 kilómetros cuadrados) y está ubicado en el suroeste de Bolivia. Esta salina era parte de un lago de sal prehistórico, el lago Minchin. A diferencia de los desiertos tradicionales, que tienen arena en abundancia, el Salar de Uyuni tiene grandes extensiones de reluciente sal blanca. Los tanques de agua salada se filtraron de las montañas circundantes y, sin salida al mar, se depositaron en el punto más bajo del Altiplano, que finalmente se convirtió en un lago gigante.

La alta salinidad significa que, aunque este vasto lago se ha evaporado durante mucho tiempo bajo el sol, queda una gruesa capa de sal, lo que hoy conocemos como el Salar de Uyuni. El salar se encuentra a aproximadamente 3650 ms No hay lugar como este en el mundo.
