Uyuni Train Cemetery

Day 1 of our 4×4 rally from Uyuni, the gateway to the salt flats, to San Pedro de Atacama in Chile started with a stop off at the Train Cemetery.

Just 3Km from Uyuni lies the rusting shells of many trains, It is a great place to explore and take photos.

The trains were abandoned in the 1940s after much of the local mining industry collapsed due to mineral depletion.

Some of these trains were even held up by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid!
