Where is this amazing white desert?

In Argentina!
The Salinas Grandes is located in the north of Argentina and it takes the province of Salta and Jujuy. It’s a 212-square-kilometer-long of the 3rd biggest salt flat in South America and the 1st of Argentina.
It is a spectacular space of kilometers and kilometers of salt that dye white a soil that used to be reddish-brown. The salty flakes that remained on the floor – and still crystallize – are the result of the evaporation of groundwater from a volcano that erupted billions of years ago. And it is an incredible landscape that is worth traveling to see.
It can be visited all year round alongside National Route 52, between the towns of Purmamarca and Susques, in Jujuy, super easy access from Salta.
Walking on the Salinas Grandes is a sensory overwhelming experience, the silence there seems to be eternal. Hours can be spent contemplating this desert of whiteness.
