Take a tour of Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
This stunning salt flat, Salar de Uyuni, is the largest salt flat in the entire world.
This breathtaking creation is situated in southwest Bolivia.
Alterations in diverse lakes belonging to the pre-historic era led to the genesis of this gorgeous flat.
What seem like small white pyramids, are in fact salt mounds that are scraped off and collected by the natives.
This landscape is well more than 10,000 square kilometers wide which makes it appear as a lush white blanket of snow.
From a plethora of minerals, lithium is the most abundant, constituting over 50 percent of the lithium reserves worldwide
Among the few plants and animals, the species most found are the huge cacti that cover the majority of the islands here.

Look up to the clouds to find Bolivia's constitutional capital, Sucre, sitting at a cool 9,000 feet.
Founded in the 16th century by the Spanish, the city is known as the City of 4 Names, with a new name for each era in its history.
Sucre is now the co-capital of the country, sharing that title and central government duties with La Paz.
Sucre's history includes the first Shout for Freedom in the Spanish colonies, though Bolivia was the last country to achieve its independence.
The city is known for its beautiful, well-preserved medieval churches, which fuse European and local styles.
Sucre became a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1991, and remains a popular destination to this day.

As many as 6,000 are left homeless and 100,000 without running water as landslides continue in Bolivia’s capital city of La Paz. Fox News calls these the worst landslides in the city’s history.
“Bolivia -- More movement from a massive landslide in La Paz. It’s the largest natural disaster recorded in the city’s recent history. The mud has reportedly obliterated seven neighborhoods and city officials say they fear it’s not over yet.”
No one died in the landslides because officials were able to order an evacuation before the biggest slides began. The BBC, who has some of the most extensive coverage on the landslides -- looks at the aftermath of people looking for their possessions and their next meal.
“The entire area has disappeared. So many people have only the shirts left on their backs. I had a small business; it was my whole life. It only allowed me to send my daughter to school, to pay for her transport. And now I don’t have it.”
President Morales has declared a state of emergency and is using $20 million to provide for the affected families. Although no one died from landslides in La Paz, Xinhua reports flooding in other areas of the country have caused 52 deaths. (Russia Today)
MSNBC says La Niña -- a weather phenomenon that causes Bolivia’s rainy season -- was unusually strong this year.
“Heavy rainfall during the La Niña season loosened soil here which lies on an earthquake fault line that was identified decades ago. So far more than 350 acres have been affected by the land movement. Witnesses to Tuesday’s initial slide took just 10 minutes.”
Accuweather reports rainfall was 50 percent above normal for February in La Paz. And the BBC says officials put the blame on climate change.
