Bolivia: Salar Uyuni – Isla Incahuasi & Cacti

Isla Incahuasi is a stunning place! It is an island in the sea of salt in Salar Uyuni – full of cacti in full bloom and surrounded by dazzling blue salt. The cacti are truly amazing – Echinopsis Atacamensis – they can reach up to 13m / 40 ft high and branch out looking like frozen people. The white flowers are 10–14 cm (4–5.5 in) in diameter and almost appear plastic, perfectly matching the color of the surrounding white salt.
