The Altiplano (Spanish for high plain), in central South America, where the Andes are at their widest, is the most extensive area of high plateau on earth outside of Tibet. Lake Titicaca is its most known geographical feature.
The Altiplano is an area of inland drainage (endorheism) lying in the central Andes, occupying parts of Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador. Its height averages about 3,300 meters (11,000 feet), somewhat less than that of Tibet. Unlike the Tibetan Plateau, however, the Altiplano is dominated by massive active volcanoes of the Central Volcanic Zone to the west. The Atacama Desert, the driest area on the whole planet, lies to the southwest of the Altiplano. In contrast, to the east lies the humid Amazon Rainforest.
At the end of the Pleistocene epoch, the whole extent of the Altiplano was covered by a vast lake, Ballivián, the present remnants of which are Lake Titicaca, straddling the Peru/Bolivia border, and Poopó, a salt lake that extends south of Oruro, Bolivia. Salar de Uyuni, locally known as "Salar de Tunupa", as well as Salar de Coipasa are two large dry salt flats formed as well after the Altiplano paleolakes dried out. ( Wikipedia)
Program day by day
The salar de Uyuni, or salt flat, will provide you with an unforgettable visual experience as well as one album of photographs friends will envy you for.
However,the experience is not for those who love luxury,pampering or comfortable temperatures. Suffice to say that god did not design the huge and barren salar, located at 3,660 meters above sea level, with the tourist in mind, and that in the eons since creation humanity has done little to improve on the Creator´s work. So get ready for a stunning visual experience-but also climatically bracing one. ( Mark Ceaser)....
