At 3.650 meters above sea level, in the bolivian altiplano exists the largest continual salt desert of the our planet, with a surface extending 4.085 square miles (10.585 Km2). In it, men work in extracting salt, lithium and borax, while having to adapt to the climate adversities and life conditions.
Small populations that are around the salar, live mainly from tourism and the production of quinoa, however this salt desert is very important for this country because under the white surface the largest lithium reserve is located. Between 50% to 70% lithium planet is concentrated in this place.
