Uyuni is home to the largest salt flats on Earth. It is a hypnotic land of shimmering salt, cactus islands, towering volcanoes, mummies, ancient ruins and indigenous traditions. There is nowhere better to enjoy this wonderland than the sensational Kachi Lodge, one of the most remarkable hotel projects on the planet.

A journey to Uyuni is truly a once in a lifetime adventure. The flats skew perspective, providing incredible displays of light as reflections from the sun, moon and stars shift throughout the day.
Experiences in the surrounding Salar region range from exploring 1,200-year-old mummy tombs to salt-collecting tutorials from locals. There are mountain bikes and high altitude treks, visits to indigenous villages and mesmerising art installations by Bolivian sensation, Gaston Ugalde.
Hot air balloon at sunrise and road-trip across the shimmering salt flats by day, passing giant cactus fields, spouting geysers and remote villages, some with houses made of salt!
At nightfall, the flats shine bright white and the sky glitters with stars and asteroids. Uyuni sunsets are like nothing you will have seen before.
The rainy season runs from November to April, and is a great time for photographers to visit. The dry season, from May to October, sees sunshine and clear skies, and slightly colder temperatures than the rainy season.
