Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

An important battle between the First Order and the Resistance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi was filmed in Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia. In the film it is a fictional mineral world called Crait, but, in reality, it is the worlds largest salt flat. A prehistoric lake drying up and leaving behind a salt desert likely created Salar De Uyuni. Fans of the film should visit this unique destination and marvel at the geological wonder; if you’re lucky, you’ll visit on a rainy day and witness the salt desert resemble a mirror.
