All road trips in Uyuni and South Lipez from Uyuni start by the Train Cimetery. Because the story still interesting, you need to go but sincerely, this place is busy or people and not really crazy to see. Consider it as a warm up

Because this was the first stop for probably every company it was full of people taking pictures and climbing on the trains. So while it was a very cool place to see, you have to be very patient to get a picture without people and you dont need to spend ages there.

It was fun to explore these old trains and take lots of pictures. My sisters and I had lots of laughs in the process.

if you have to pay to see it, don't. it has history but it just looks like an abandoned junkyard. it's not even well kept.

Just outside Uyuni the train cemetery is a brilliant, quirky place to spend an hour or so. We did it as sunset when the setting sun casts shadows and makes the place even more eerie and desolate than it normally is. I loved it though, it is just about the last thing you'd expect to see in a place like... More

We stopped off here on the way to the salt flats. Its a nice photo opportunity but I wouldn't go solely for the trains unless you like your old school locomotives.

Before going to Bolivia, I was interested in going to the Train Cemetery from the pictures obtained during my research of Bolivia. During my visit last year, I was able to capture some great compositions of the abandoned and antique trains although the sky was a solid blue. (If it's a windy day, the area can get very dusty so...
