Tunupa is a volcano rising from a peninsula jutting into Salar de Uyuni. The sacred 5,321-meter-high mountain, which is worshipped by indigenous peoples, is impressive for its colorful mountain surface, and its solitary form can be seen from various locations in Salar de Uyuni. Staying in a small village on the northern shore of the salt lake, trying your hand at mountain climbing or looking up at the beautiful mountains at sunrise or sunset from close quarters will make your visit to Salar de Uyuni even more memorable.
Salar de Uyuni Area
The Salar de Uyuni is a pure white, otherworldly place that stretches across the highlands of Bolivia. The world's largest salt plain, covering more than 10,000 square kilometers, is also the flattest place in the world, with a height difference of less than 50 centimeters. The best time to visit is during the rainy season, when the "mirror in the sky" reflects the sky. Visitors can enjoy an exhilarating drive through the salt world on a tour that takes them to numerous scenic spots and surrounding villages.
