Travel Channel's Road to the Unexpected: Bolivia

Go behind the scenes with Travel Channel host Don Wildman as he explores the Salar de Uyuni.

In Bolivia, you’ll find the southern hemisphere’s highest and most rugged terrain.

But the real reason travelers flock here is for the Salar de Uyuni.

With just a few centimeters of water, it is transformed into the largest reflective surface on the planet.

In the right vehicle, you might get to see some unusual sights, including llama crossings and pink flamingos.

The crew catches a majestic rainbow fading into the rugged scenery.

It’s almost 12,000 feet above sea level here.

The area is so flat that satellites can actually use it to calculate their distance from earth.

Most people don’t get to get up close to these giant cacti, which Don says “invoke images of another world.”

The sun sets on another amazing shoot.
