Caption: Uyuni salt flat. This salt flat is an arid basin that lies high in the Andes mountains of Bolivia. It is circled by mountains, with the basin covering over 9000 square kilometres. The white surface seen consists of mineral salts that were deposited by an ancient lake that evaporated. It is estimated to contain over ten billion tonnes of salts.
