Travelers who visit Salar de Uyuni love creating "perspective images." It's the chance to create all sorts of silly scenarios with the help of a few props, the salt fields and a little enthusiasm.

Due to its high altitude, dry climate and remoteness, this region offers some of the best stargazing opportunities on the planet.

When it rains in the Salar, the result is MAGIC. The water on the salt creates a "reflection" effect and makes it look like you are floating amongst the clouds.
