This surreal train cemetery is unexpectedly picturesque. A highlight of Uyuni.

On your way to Salar de Uyuni chances are you will make a stop at the Train Cemetery. And if your driver doesn't stop here, be sure to ask because is an awesomely odd sight. The rusted out shell of dozens of train cars sit abandoned in the desert and are ripe for you to explore and climb through.

Located just outside Uyuni, the antique train cemetery is included on most tours of the salt flats. The area was once a commercial rail hub, with mining companies using the tracks to transport minerals to the Pacific. A number of steam trains were abandoned here in the 1940s, their rusting bodies now a tourist attraction. Stopping to explore, travellers can climb up into and on top of the locomotives and their carriages.

Interesting attraction to visit right outside Uyuni, all tours of the Salar make this a first stop. There are a lot of abandoned trains that can be climbed (at your own risk) and endless photography possibilities. It is where the old railway from Oruro passed before it was replaced.
