Salar de Uyuni dia 4
Waking up very early at around 4 am, we left the hostel and joined the salar de Uyuni, we stopped in the middle of this salt “sea” to see the sunrise and drove on till the Isla de Pesca where we stopped for a walk on it till the top to enjoy the view on the whole Salar.
We felt really fast out of breath because of the altitud, still at 3660 meters. but the view was worth walking.
We stopped at the middle of the salar to do some crazy pictures…
A company do extract 20’000 tons of salt every year by mans hand. This salt is only used in the country.
Arrivin at midday in Uyuni, definitely not that nice I booked a bus to Potosi for the evening. In the meantime I just spent the afternoon relaxing on the main place meeting a lot of french people.
