The Weirdness That Is Salar De Uyuni

You wouldn’t think that the remnants of a prehistoric lake would make much of a destination, but this slideshow of Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, shows you why it’s a must-see in South America.

Besides the odd mirror-like effect that occurs after it rains (see above), the salt flat is known for the optical illusions its depth perceptionless terrain provides (see below).
