The salt flats of Uyuni in Bolivia (Salar de Uyuni) consist of a solid salt cap whose thickness varies from a few tens of centimetres to several metres. Beneath it is a lake of saturated salt and mineral solutions that varies between 2m and 20m in depth. Leaving aside the factual information, though, it is a place of  stunning natural beauty, especially during the summer months when the flats are covered in several inches of water and everywhere you look there is an almost perfect reflection. Sometimes it is virtually impossible to make out the horizon.
