Salar de Uyuni isn’t just the world’s largest salt flat. When it gets wet, it becomes the world’s largest mirror too.
Made of the heavily transformed remnants of prehistoric lakes, it’s situated 12,000 feet above sea-level in the Bolivian Andes.
Though positioned near the crest of a mountain range, Salar de Uyuni is known for its extraordinary flatness. That flatness, combined with the brilliant white surface, produces its mirror-like appearance after rainfall.
