While tours of the Bolivian Salt Flats begin at three different destinations: Uyuni in Bolivia, San Pedro de Atacama in Chile and Tupiza in Bolivia. If you are coming from Bolivia, the most popular option is to begin the tour in the remote town, Uyuni.
The most popular way to travel from La Paz to Uyuni is to take an 8 hour overnight bus. These buses depart at night and arrive early in the morning, allowing travelers to start their tour of the flats that same day.
