We got there early for sunrise and it's beautiful. It was very cold but worth it for the landscape and the pictures we got were amazing. Definitely take the journey across it!

The whole area is completely surreal - there is this sea of salt, and the road is right in the middle. I was really impressed by the grandeur of it. Simply magnifiscent!

Not as white as in Argentinas ( Salinas Grande) but definitely worth a look -a few tourist restaurants along the way but all were closed.
