Bolivia, Uyuni, this is the real mirror of the sky
in recent years, as if there are many mirrors of the sky, many of them are mirrors on the ground, or small The mirror of the sky reflected in the scale of the salt lake, I always feel that something is missing. This time, I finally crossed the earth to the mirror of the Uyuni sky in Bolivia on the other side of the globe.
We entered the country from Chile. In Chile, Puno used the half-day time to run the most difficult Bolivian visa, then to the Bolivian capital La Paz and then to Uyuni. The town of Uyuni is itself a town that has risen because of the development of Salt Lake tourism. The town is not big. There are many English-speaking travel agencies at the intersection of Av ferroviaria and Sucre street. You can compare the prices of several hotels to choose the right travel agency. We were in a car for three days and followed us to two nights of starry sky and sunrise, three days of sunset. I personally think that sunrise and sunset is the most beautiful time of the mirror of the sky.
, Bolivia Traffic: You can fly from the capital La Paz or 10 hours bus
