Uyuni is a small city of just over 10,000 inhabitants in the southwest of Bolivia and lying at the edge of an extensive plain at an elevation of 3,700 m (12,139 ft) above sea level, with more mountainous country to the east.¬†There is little agriculture in the area because water supplies are scarce and somewhat saline.¬† Uyuni was founded in 1890 as a trading post, but today serves as a gateway for tourists visiting the world’s largest salt flats, the nearby Uyuni salt flat. Each year the town receives approximately 60,000 visitors from around the globe.
