200 dollars per person for three days and two nights, excluding air tickets. Happy to play, this life is worth the trip. Starting from La Paz, ticket 760bs to Uyuni. The guide and driver picked us up. You don't need a guide to speak Spanish. You can't speak Spanish. It's also cost-effective to hire an English-speaking guide for $50 a day. All four-wheel jeeps are mountainous, high-altitude. Driver guide plus four of our tourists, a team of six. The first station, the railway cemetery, a pile of old trains with a history of more than 100 years, was cut away some useful steel plates, old and shabby, climbing to experience the feeling of railway guerrillas. The second station is the salt lake, which is very large and thick. The salt layer is more than 10 meters behind. Salty dead. Salt bricks can build houses, make sculptures, tables and souvenirs made of salt. It's interesting. No water season is not good, water has mirror effect. Tour guides are creative in taking pictures, with various poses. Lunch is a guide's belt, staple food is similar to sorghum rice, meat is lamb chops, beans, carrots, potatoes, vegetables salad, eat comfortable. Picnic on the spot, Salt Lake experience is different. Next stop is Cactus Island, ticket 30bs, self-paid. See you for the first time in more than 200 years. It's all here, is it perfect? Hard thorns, thick and long, can be used as toothpicks. There is also the first time to see cactus made of crafts, the original cactus internal structure is such ah! The first night sleeping in a small town, salt brick houses, simple, but also experience life. Four people's general stores, public toilets, you can also pay for a single room, the conditions are not very good. No hot water. Unified management of mobile phone charging requires queuing. Dinner and accommodation are provided in a unified way, rather than the lunch prepared by the tour guide. Sleep quality at high altitude is general. Start at 6 a.m. and travel the next day. There are mainly several volcanic lakes. It's all mountain roads, almost no roads, all cars come out. I saw herds of alpacas. All the way to see volcanic rocks, distant volcanoes, snow mountains, colorful, the first volcanic lake, flamingos in groups, distant volcanic snow mountains, grassland lakes, blue sky and white clouds, the scenery is really beautiful. With the first one, the back one doesn't look so amazing. But it's also beautiful. Lunch is taken by the tour guide. Eat at a rest station, pasta, steak, salad. You can surf the Internet here for 20 BS for 10 minutes. Since there is no signal including the local mobile signal when entering the mountain, it is necessary to report home safety. You can run a local card with a traffic of 800 meters per 25bs a week, which is enough. Afternoon to Red Lake Flamingo Reserve. This is the most beautiful place. Tickets for 150 BS reserve at your own expense. Actually, there is no enclosed protection zone, which relies solely on conscious ticket purchasing. After buying the tickets, go straight to the lodging and lodging, grab the bed first, and then you have to choose when you are late. There are only a few, not many rooms. The conditions are worse than before. Similarly, there is no hot water to wash, no charge, and no public toilet. The bedclothes are not clean, so let's sleep with our clothes. Sound insulation is very bad. European and American tourists stay up late at night and make a lot of noise. After staying, he immediately returned to see the beautiful scenery of the Red Lake. Flamingos have alpaca, Red Lake water, green moss, yellow withered grass, brown mountains, interwoven layer by layer, with blue sky and white clouds, beautiful!
The legendary dry season - May bumps all the way from Lapaz by bus. Then I think it might be more suitable to fly in winter. In fact, it's really cold. Few Chinese people go online to recommend travel agencies with Japanese and Korean people. They report the sunset group and a day trip. They meet many interesting Japanese and Korean friends. Some of them have been away from school for a year. Some of them have been working in South America. Some of them have come to meet their classmates in the United States. Some of them come to Kyushu to take their wedding photos on their own. Others like me work hard to find themselves (except that people are paid and I resign as a cover). Tour guides usually teach people to pose concavely and leave a lot of interesting pictures with friends for a while. Uyuni should have many faces, but the one you see depends on luck and not having a camera. I can't stand being frozen in the middle of the night, holding my iPhone in the sunset, capturing moments and moments of wondering how wonderful it would be to be able to go with someone I like again in my lifetime.
Everything is perfect. I arrived at the town at 9.55 a.m. and started a daytime group at 10 o'clock to deliver the hotel (actually, taxi to the hotel is more expensive than the group fee). There were five guests in a car, Beijing sister, Nanjing brother and two Japanese sisters who spoke Mandarin. So besides the driver, this salt lake felt like it had to be on the scene.
Uyuni Salt Lake is very close to the Mirror of the Sky. It is also one of the highest salt lakes in the world. The water here is very salty. There are no living things living in the river. In the distance, there are vast snowy mountains. It seems very lonely. Maybe this is the charm of Uyuni Salt Lake.
When it comes to salt lakes, the most famous one is Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni Salt Lake, whose nickname is "Mirror of the Sky", while Syvash Lake, which you may not have heard of, has a different beauty. It is located in Crimea beside Ukraine, a rare pink salt lake in the world. If "Mirror of the Sky" is the closest place on earth to heaven, then the pink salt lake in Crimea is the place where the sun sets. If you have the opportunity to visit Ukraine or even Crimea, don't forget to look here.
Uyuni Salt Lake is located at the top of the Glasvia Plateau, which is an important industrial salt producing area in the world. Surrounded by snowy mountains, the lake is pale blue. Tomorrow, when there is no wind, the water is quite calm compared with the famous Sky Mirror. It is one of the scenic spots that must be visited by tourists from Glasvia.
Beauty is not negotiable. Beauty is dazzling. The scenery here is fascinating. In fact, it's very simple to think about it. It's blue sky and white clouds. But there's a mirror for the next day that looks at the blue sky and white clouds. When people walk on it, it feels like...! This kind of beauty can only be understood if you have been there!
The mirror of the sky is so magnificent that it still can't be believed with its eyes. January and February are the best seasons. It rains at night and sunny days are the best. There is no way to help yourself. All-way travel agency off-road vehicles drive very slowly in order to reduce corrosion. Bolivia is backward as a whole. The only place to visit is good. There are a lot of Japanese tourists here.
