a pinch of the sur­real

ELLE (Canada) - - Travel -

Nope, that’s not snow jux­ta­posed with cacti—it’s the world’s largest salt flat, near Uyuni, Bo­livia. And smack dab in the mid­dle of the 10,500-square-kilo­me­tre expanse is Isla Inc­ahuasi, a dor­mant volcano im­plau­si­bly pep­pered with tow­er­ing suc­cu­lents that grow at a rate of just one cen­time­tre a year. Mind-blow­ing is an un­der­state­ment. After my salt sa­fari, I looked up the pi­quant land­scape in my copy of 501 Must-Visit

Nat­u­ral Won­ders and was stunned to find that it’s not in­cluded. Def­i­nitely time for a new edi­tion. christina reynolds
