The Salar De Uyuni Is the largest salt flat in the world covering over 4000 sq miles.
Again 4000sq miles doesn’t look that big at home on google earth but when you try and cross it it bloomin well is.
Another unworldly place to add to the list, this place felt even dryer than the desert which was quite a surprise.
The salt here Is so hard, you have to pre-drill a hole with a knife and then hammer the tent pegs in, having done that though they we’re in they were in pretty solid!!
The salt varies as you ride along from a watery reflective surface to ridged bumpy little hexagonal shaped little salt walls that feels just like riding on frozen snow.
It sure was a strange place to be especially when you get towards the middle and there is just yourself surrounded by pure white nothingness.
Coming from a WSW direction it was a hell of a short cut compared with the road although I’m glad it wasn’t any bigger.
Approaching the land on day 2 was a nice feeling , there was an actual shoreline of dark rock so I felt just like a little boat coming in to land after a couple of days at sea.
What a place to ride.[click on the image to view In gallery mode]
