    Take a tour of Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. This stunning salt flat, Salar de Uyuni, is the largest salt flat in the entire world. This breathtaking creation is situated in southwest Bolivia. Alterations in diverse lakes belonging to the pre-historic era led to the genesis of this gorgeous flat. What seem like small white pyramids, are in fact salt mounds that are scraped off and collected by the natives. This landscape is well more than 10,000 square kilometers wide which makes it appear as a lush white blanket of snow. From a plethora of minerals, lithium is the most abundant, constituting over 50 percent of the lithium reserves worldwide Among the few plants and animals, the species most found are the huge cacti that cover the majority of the islands here.
