Its one of the favorite haunt for photographers who throng here to capture amazing shots of reflections and mirror images of landscapes. Its technically the planets biggest mirror. The region also has abundant lithium deposits which are used to make batteries.

The incredible 6,575 square mile flat is home to many shallow lakes that reflect the gorgeous skies, clouds and animals of Bolivia. A walk across the miles of white salt looks more like a trek across the moon than a trip through South America.
