Border Between Heaven and Earth “Bolivia”
The Bolivia Salt Flats, or Salar de Uyuni,also known as the border between between heaven and earth, might be one of the most stunning places on Earth. The world’s largest salt flat is in the Daniel Campos Province in Potos, and is pretty much a photographer’s (and Instagrammer’s) paradise.
The dreamy reflection cascading over the salt flats creates a heaven-on-Earth effect – and one of the most gorgeous backdrops we’ve ever seen. Take a look and, inevitably, move this spot to the top of your travel bucket list.Travelzoo Tip: Plan your trip according to the experience you’re hoping to have — the best climate can be found July-October, but the best time to see the “world’s largest mirror” is between March and April.
Before we go deeper into Salar de Uyuni, we stop for a lunch in a place built wholly of salt, which stands in the middle of the desertic nowhere. Luis has prepared food for us – llama steak and quinoa with vegetables. It’s so remarkably tasty! And healthy too! Quinoa is the basic component of Bolivians’ and Peruvians’ diet. It’s been cultivated for 5000 years. It was the basic food in the Inca Empire, as a substitute of corn, which was very difficult to plant on the mountain slopes. Customarily, the Inca ruler sowed the first seeds. Until the conquest of the Inca Empire by the Spaniards, wheat and barley were introduced as well, what made quinoa less important in the region.
However, because of its prohealthful abilities it became appreciated once more and thanks to that quinoa became known in various parts of the world. It’s included in the group of highly nutritive food, so-called superfoods, because it contains not only protein but also lots of other components, which are valuable for our health. It’s a rich source of manganese, magnesium, calcium, iron, copper and phosphorus. The inhabitants of the Southern America are aware of that and eat it almost every day, praising its magical influence on the organism.
