Information about Uyuni Train Cemetery

Direccion: Uyuni, Bolivia - See on the Map

Very close to the town of Uyuni, is this cemetery with trains and wagons dating from the nineteenth century.

The railway lines were built to transport minerals throughout Bolivia and Chile (specifically Antofagasta). Over time, this boom was declining until the trains were abandoned in the vicinity of Uyuni.
The first line that was created in Bolivia, was in 1899 that of the Uyuni - Antofagasta railway, which mainly transported loaded wagons of silver, that left the mines of Huanchaca

As it has been said in many websites and blogs, that Uyuni is not only salar ... it is true, it is an impressive landscape full of history and desolation.
