From La Paz I jumped on a bus to Uyuni in south east Bolivia. After the nightmare bus ride from Cusco to La Paz I decided I would treat myself to a ticket on a touristic bus. It was a lot more comfortable but unfortunately only half the way to Uyuni is actually paved. The other half is dirt roads, so even in the most comfortable seat you are still being thrown around.

In Uyuni I joined a three day 4wd tour of the salt flats that would drop me off in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile.

The tour was excellent. Many hours of sitting in the 4wd because the distances to be covered were great but it was all worth it. Bolivia is an amazingly beautiful country and if you don`t mind doing it rough (and I don`t) then I recommend a visit.

On the tour we visited the Salt Lake, volcanic mountains, deserts, geysers, hot springs and lagoons. It is difficult to capture how beautiful these places are on camera but I did my best.
