A nice start for the salar tour. Can give you the option to make some nice pictures, especially with a group of friends. Might be a bit crowded during high season.

This meets the definition of a tourist trap. The Train Cemetry is not maintained or looked after. Tourists are able to climb over every train, and generally damage the site. You can visit this site without any tour guide. Still, its impressive to see but...More

The train cemetry is not looked after and is covered with low quality graffiti which ruins any potential for good photos. I was completely underwhelmed by this 'attraction'.

We were in Uyuni primarily to go onto the salt plains (just amazing - see separate review), but stopped off at the train cemetery first. This was a mazing - all these steam trains from the late 1800s or so, just lying there. Workplace health...More

We were brought here as part of our Day Tour with Hodaka Mountain (see my separate review). It is not a large area and our guide gave us about 30 minutes to roam around. You can climb up on any of the trains and nothing...More

The train cemetery is a first stop on many tours of the salt flats and it is slightly interesting. You feel a bit like you are on the set of the Mad Max movies. Basically, it is a junkyard in a desert and most people...More

You can see a lot of old rail locks rosting in the desert. Funny to take some pictures but not a "must see" when in Bolivia. But when you do a tour to the Salar de Uyuni, the agencys will take you there and tell...More

The train cemetery is a great place to visit. The trains are a lot of fun to clamber and climb on. Since it’s close to town, there are really a lot of people there, so it’s very busy.

This seems to be a first stop on any tour out to the Salar de Uyuni and it felt as if we were being taken to the town dump. There were many trains left there to rust away, the whole experience seemed quite odd really...
