Salar de Uyuni – world’s largest mirror surface
Covered by a few meters of salt crust, Salar de Uyuni is the largest dried-up salt lake in the world. Located in a valley in the Altiplano of Bolivia at an altitude of 3,650 m above sea level. The inner part of the lake – covered with a layer of salt thickness 2-8 m during the rainy season is covered with a thin layer of saline water and is transformed into the world’s largest mirror surface. Meanwhile, Aymara legend tells that the mountains Tunupa, Kusku and Kusina, which surround the Salar, were giant people. Tunupa married Kusku, but Kusku ran away from her with Kusina. Grieving Tunupa started to cry while breast-feeding her son. Her tears mixed with milk and formed the Salar. Noteworthy, many locals consider the Tunupa an important deity and say that the place should be called Salar de Tunupa rather than Salar de Uyuni
