    Before the upgrade the One Salon was running 75 energy inefficient 50-watt halogen light bulbs for 10 hours per day. This resulted in a lot of excess heat, energy and expense for the salon.

    Reading these comments, is always interesting to know the different view points of several people around the world. Most of them agree in keeping the awesome Salar de Uyuni as a toursit atraction and they are right! However the one who completely desagree is Marcin (from where?). In some degree he/she is right. People of Bolivia needs that lithium mining money for growing in education, better way of living but Bolivia already has alot of money for mining, gas and oil and the question is where is now that money? most probably in the pocket of the huge oil/mining companies from Canada, France, USA, England, etc. and of course in the pocket of some corrupted goverment officials. Any way money is money so why not to do do as Ecuador is doing to protect the Yasuni National Park? There is enough money in the world in few hands and countries, so why not those countries and rich individuals provide the money for Bolivia and the Bolivian goverment keep the Salar de Uyuni as it is now: beautiful, untouched, a legacy for our future generations.

    Great site Nelisa.

    Marcin makes some very valid points. She is right, of course, but a counter arguement is that tourism brings income to the people of the Salar--and other places in the same fix--and that income does not destroy the attractions that bring the moneys while, on the other hand, mineral resources (as we are learning every day) are finite--and once they are gone----?

    We are a monthly Internet travel magazine, and we have featured the Salar de Uyuni several times.

    It is a unique place on the planet, and we support your efforts to keep it that way.

    Look up the articles on our Romar Traveler site archive.(http://www.romartraveler.com)

    We have always recommended the Salar of Uyuni as one of the top destinations in a life time. And we sincerely believe that visiting it can also be profitable for local Bolivian people who warmly receive, guide and accommodate us. Here is a tiny sample of the wonders we experimented ourselves:

    Debemos proteger el Salar mas grande del Mundo y promover la creación y declaración como una parque nacional para evitar, de esa manera su destrucción por el turismo masivo y por extracción de recursoso naturales

    Bolivia is a 3rd world country, one of the poorest in the word and is not in the position to afford having a luxury of one of greatest salt lakes in the world as a tourist attraction! Extracting lithium is the change of putting the country in new era and ending poverty problems.
    In my opinion the question is not: should we destroy the lake to take the lithium, the answer is obvious. The question is: will the local people benefit from the extraction, will this create work places, and last but not least if the profit will be benefit the country economy and will be distributed equality, or will it be stolen from the country by international corporations.
    With current constitution and Morales in charge it is likely that they will nationalise the industry, which is good, but there is a serious problem with that - if they don't have the money, resources and technology to compete with other countries like China, the battle is lost.
    Everyone who is a western tourist, with western money have no moral right to decide "to save" the lake only because you want to have a picture over there! This is discounting hypocrisy!

    "Flamingos, lagunas, volcanos, geisers, native people and animal. Awesome. " - truly awesome mate, natives and flamingos in one line - a tourist attraction - you make a picture with them and you leave with a smile.
    They are NOT tourist attraction, they are PEOPLE who need schooling, medicare, maybe they even want to go travel like you to see more than damn salt, don't you think?

    I have spent 3 days and 2 nights in the south of Bolivia. The salt desert in Uyuni is one of the greatest point to visit in South America. It was the highlight of my trip around the continent. Flamingos, lagunas, volcanos, geisers, native people and animal. Awesome.

    I love this place so much!
    We have spent a day and a night on it, wonderful eperience! One of the most beautiful spots on earth. If El salar de Uyuni dies because of cupidity, it will mean the end of many other beautiful things on our planet.

    I have yet to visit the Salar de Uyuni, but even from photographs I have fallen in love with its unique beauty. I think it would be a travesty to destroy such a wondrous part of our world. Please don't!

    The Salar is such an awesome place, I hope they will think twice and not let monetary interests win.
