The Salt Hotel, Bolivia

Situated in the middle of the world’s largest salt flats lies one of this planet’s most unique, if not resourceful hotels. Bolivia’s “Hotel de Sal” sits alone atop a vast plain of milk colored and perfectly level salt at 3600 meters above sea level in Southern Bolivia. It is more reminiscent of an oversized skating rink than a piece of land. While nearing the Salt Hotel the sun reflects powerfully into the eyes of trespassers, seemingly providing a deterrent and begging people to turn back from its desolate and isolated environment. Its blinding locale seems to be one of the worst suited to a hotel, yet each year thousands of people flock to this obscure hideaway for a chance to stay in a hotel made entirely of salt.
