Things To Do in Potosi

北极星Far away in Bolivia, the dreamy skyline of Uyuni, the most beautiful part of the trip to South America, is known as the "sky mirror" in the western plateau of Bolivia's Potosí province. In addition to the endless salt flats, there are pink flamingos, millennium cactus, rare hummingbirds and hotels built entirely of salt bricks, which makes Uyuni Salt Marsh a must-visit for tourists in South America ~ Many say it is very similar to the Chaka Salt Lake in Qinghai. "It must be said that there is a similarity, but only when you have been to Uyuni, you can understand what the real sky is, because the area is many times the size of Chaka Salt Lake, and the endless salt lake is covered by rain, and the smooth surface reflects white clouds." Wonderland! Generally people who come to Uyuni will participate in a half-day tour, sunrise or sunset tour in the local area. Experienced local guides drive the car and bring the team to find a mirror. I personally recommend watching the sunset, because in addition to seeing the colorful sky, we can also see the reflection of the galaxy. Spectacular. Most people will pay a three-day, two-night tour to Chile after visiting the salt lake, or from the Chilean border to Uyuni, the tour is basically the same, but from Uyuni will be cheaper than in Chile, the general price is about $170. 🌸🌸🌸 Three days and two nights tours will visit the train cemetery - Cactus Island - Various lakes - Red Lake - Geothermal Springs in turn, of which I like the train cemetery and Red Lake and Geothermal Springs the most. 💫 The train cemetery is a lot of abandoned locomotives, but it is covered with graffiti and it is particularly interesting to take pictures. 💫The red lake naturally shows pink color, and there are many flamingos around it, which seems to be especially girlish! 💫 Geothermal springs are not the geyser zone that normally understands the hot springs, but a geothermal field, consisting mainly of steam pools and mud pools, the most representative of steam pools that rise steam at all times, it is said that steam can be up to 50 meters in the morning under pressure. 🌈 About traffic: We entered La Paz, Bolivia's capital, from Peru, and then La Paz flew to Uyuni. The price of the ticket is very stable, basically in the early 122th, the flight time is 40 minutes. 🌈 Regarding visas: Bolivia can land visa for Chinese passports, visa fee is $130 (requires a copy of Xiaohuang). If you apply in advance at the Peruvian Embassy in Cusco in Bolivia, it only needs $30. It can be obtained on the same day, first of all! 🌈 About the temperature: The temperature difference between morning and evening is particularly large, and short sleeves can be used during the day, because UV is strong and must be sunscreen, and the jacket is very necessary when the star cluster.

圣热尔韦昂瓦列尔周勃The Salar de Uyuni is located in the western plateau of Potosi Province, Bolivia. It is 3,656 meters (11,995 feet) above sea level, 150 kilometers long, 130 kilometers wide, and covers an area of 9,065 square kilometers. It is the world’s largest salt-covered wasteland. "Mirror". There are salt fields on the edge, and the main salt fields are connected by roads. We took a four-wheel drive across the vast and endless salt lake. What is amazing is the cactus island in the salt lake. Picture 2 is a volcano in the distance, picture 8 is a salt table and chair

凹凸曼和小伙伴Uyuni smelly lake play guide Recommendation index🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 🦩A must for bird watching, you can see mythical beasts along the way. It can be said that it is a cost-effective route that combines both the god bird and the god animal. 📍Geographical location: On the border of Bolivia and Chile, about 4.5 hours one way from Uyuni. 🚙Mode of transportation: Self-driving 🏞Recommended route: Uyuni chartered tour ⌚️Play time: 10 hours 📷Recommended equipment: a telephoto lens is equipped according to financial resources! 🔺Remember to run in with the camera before you travel, otherwise you will regret it. After all, this thing is heavy and big, and if it doesn't work, it's basically a white back. 👓Clothing suggestions: Sunglasses, sun protection clothing, physical sun protection, shoes with non-slip wear resistance is better. 📝Travel tips: 🔸The weather in Uyuni is unpredictable. I originally wanted to sign up for a three-day tour, but because of the heavy rains, the cactus island channel was flooded, um~ So the most force majeure of the tour is definitely the weather. I finally chose the two-day tour. I suggest you prepare more Several travel options. 🔹Smelly lake is rich in various minerals, especially sulphur, so it smells like eggs. But after a long time, I got used to it. After all, the picnic during the trip was still by the smelly lake. The picnic includes drinks (cola, mineral water), staple food (roast chicken, rice), vegetable salad, and fruit (banana). 🔸Flamingos in high altitude areas are mainly pink, one is the species, and the other is the lack of lutein in the algae in the salt lake. 🔹No matter the beast or bird, they are all super vigilant, without a telephoto lens, and they ran away when they got close.

天羽博士This is probably one of the weirdest hotels in the world, known as the Salt Palace. As the name suggests, it is all made of salt. Although the locals promise that it will never collapse, I believe it will not, but it is still a little uncomfortable psychologically. It feels a bit similar to walking on the glass path. A must-have song in the salt palace, lick the wall. See if it is really salt.
