Part of the tour.. nice!

It's usually part of the tour so you will get to visit it. You will live anyway without seeing it as it's not even comparable to the Salar or the lagunas. But given that you're... read more

It's usually part of the tour so you will get to visit it. You will live anyway without seeing it as it's not even comparable to the Salar or the lagunas. But given that you're there, it's pretty interesting to go and visit it.

I really liked this place but i can understand why people don't. In the end its just a bunch of rusted trains. You can climb up and into these skeletons and get some pics. The graffiti on the trains does liven up the place. My tip would be to go to the furthest train as most people don't go that... More

This is a one off, a bit like the aeroplanes' 'graveyard' in the US, I guess. If you're a steam engine fan yo'll also probably cringe too at the dereliction. Yes, do the visit.

I visited this place seven years ago, and again this year. Then it was like an abandoned train cementary, but now it was full of tourists. You can get some cool photos at this place, but barely without an amount of other tourists.

We stopped here before going to our hotel in Uyuni. It was a bit disappointing to see so much graffiti as this is the main attraction of Uyuni.

It is an intereting place to see many old, rusty trains. In the morning it is full of tourists who are taking the Uyuni tour. You cant take a good picture, there are people everywhere. It is very close to town so maybe you can walk or take a taxi there in the afternoon to be alone. Also if you... More

Just a place to take some pictures, it is apocaliptical, mad Max style, but if you want to enjoy the place go alone. Just take the Potosi street in Uyuni and go on, it is a 20 minutes walk and you can stay as long as you want and alone. It is a it better cause all the agencys visit... More

Yes it's interesting if you are into the old trains and pieces of metal in general haha... you can climb on the wagons and take a few pictures but that's really it. All trips stops there so it's not like you are taking a special trip just to see it. As a part of whole 3 days trip is ok.... More

This was the last stop on our Salar tour and I could've given it a miss. I was exhausted and recovering from altitude sickness and we had to drive through the depressing town of Uyuni to its outskirts to see this creepy 'attraction'. It definitely had the feel of a graveyard. There's lots of rubbish everywhere and you can tell... More
