The Salar de Uyuni, in the middle of the Andes in southern Bolivia, is the largest saline in the world. It is the legacy of a prehistoric lake that dried up and left a desert landscape of almost 11,000 square kilometers of bright white salt, rock formations and islands with cacti. Its mystical extension can be observed from the central Incahuasi island. Although wildlife is scarce in this unique ecosystem, it houses several pink flamingos.
