This is the largest of the world’s salt flats, measuring over 10 000 square kilometers. This remarkably flat surface is used to calibrate distance measuring equipment on satellites. A lack of depth cues makes it a popular spot for tourists to snap entertaining optical illusions. In the wet season the flats turn into a giant mirror!
