What people are saying:

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.

    Amazing landscapes!

    Take a good camera + wide angle lens for great images. Colors are magnificent. Be sure you sign up with a good tour operator that provides a knowledgeable guide and a good driver.

    Simply Amazing!

    One of your first stops if you are touring from San Pedro. What an amazing sight to witness. The beautiful Laguna Hedionda is opening sight once you enter Bolivia. A must see!
