Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia.
Salar de Uyuni might be considered the world’s largest mirror. Stretching nearly 11 000 square km across central Bolivia, it is the world’s biggest salt flat. After the rain falls and the water has settled, the ground at Salar de Uyuni reflects a perfectly clear image of the sky above, creating a dream-like world and giving the illusion of visitors and vehicles treading on water. These salt flats lie at the top of the Andes, at an elevation of 3650 m. The area also holds half the world’s supply of lithium.
Tianzi Mountains, China.
Look familiar? These colossal pedestals resemble scenery witnessed in the mega blockbuster Avatar. In fact the special effects team visited the Hunan mountain region of China during pre-production, using one of the columns as a proto-type for the Hallelujah mountains in the film. On the top of the mountains, one can have a bird‘s eye view of numberless inter winding hills and deep valleys of the Wulingyuan area as well as downpouring waterfalls and lofty old pines in drifting mists and clouds.
