    Arrival in Uyuni airport with immediate departure on a full day tour of Salt Lake and Incahuasi. Uyuni is the largest salt lake on Earth, covering nearly 5,000 square miles on the Bolivian Andean High plateau. This is a weird, bone-dry landscape of spiky cacti, flat horizons and allencompassing silence. Dotted with lakes tinted by minerals and algae, patrolled by colorful flamingos, this is surely the most unearthly place on earth. At Isla Pescado, also called “Inca Wasi,” discover an oasis with formations of algae and fossils, covered by thousands of giant columnar cacti that can live more than a hundred years and grow to more than 36 feet tall. Needless to say, this otherworldly landscape is heaven for photographers. Overnight at hotel. (L,D)
