DISCOVER THE ENCHANTING ALTIPLANO

Altiplano

 “It’s nature, so breath taking and untamed. The starry sky, is so immense and overwhelming. The jeep tears across unpaved roads across the abandoned alien landscape. Nature’s elements show themselves in their most pure forms: turquoise lakes, golden brown sandy hills, gushing geysers and jagged cactus islands. The wild llamas graze on the horizon and hundreds of flamingos gather at the lakes.”

Earth, wind, fire and water

The Altiplano is the most expansive plateau on earth after Tibet and is located in the South American Andes at an average altitude of 3300 metres. The largest part is in Bolivia, the northern parts stretch out to Peru and the southern parts have offshoots in Chile and Argentina. With a surface of 10,000 km2, Bolivia has the largest salt plane of South America.

The Altiplano gets its surrealist shapes and colours from active volcanoes, water and wind. The heavenly landscape is inhabited by, llamas, vicuñas, alpacas and flamingos. The Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt flat in the world.  Jeep safaris start from the town of Uyuni to go on trips of one or multiple days to discover this natural wonder. Become submerged in this surreally beautiful world and sleep under the largest starry sky in the southern hemisphere. This is one of our absolute highlights at UYUNI Travels!
