Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Bolivia Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat at 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi). It is located in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes and is at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above mean sea level.The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar. The crust serves as a source of salt and covers a pool of brine, which is exceptionally rich in lithium. It contains 50 to 70% of the world's lithium reserves, which is in the process of being extracted. The large area, clear skies, and the exceptional flatness of the surface make the Salar an ideal object for calibrating the altimeters of Earth observation satellites. The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of pink flamingos. Salar de Uyuni is also a climatological transitional zone since the towering tropical cumulus congestus and cumulus incus clouds that form in the eastern part of the salt flat during the summer cannot permeate beyond its drier western edges, near the Chilean border and the Atacama Desert. Salar de Uyuni attracts tourists from around the world. As it is located far from the cities, a number of hotels have been built in the area. Due to lack of conventional construction materials, many of them are almost entirely (walls, roof, furniture) built with salt blocks cut from the Salar. The first such hotel was erected in 1993–1995 in the middle of the salt flat, and soon became a popular tourist destination.However, its location in the center of a desert caused sanitation problems, as most waste had to be collected manually. Mismanagement caused serious environmental pollution and the hotel had to be dismantled in 2002.New salt hotels were built near the periphery of the Salar, closer to roads, in full compliance with environmental rules. Train cemetery One major tourist attraction is an antique train cemetery. It is 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) outside Uyuni and is connected to it by the old train tracks. The town served in the past as a distribution hub for the trains carrying minerals en route to Pacific Ocean ports. The rail lines were built by British engineers arriving near the end of the 19th century and formed a sizeable community in Uyuni. The engineers were invited by the British-sponsored Antofagasta and Bolivia Railway Companies, now Ferrocarril de Antofagasta a Bolivia. The rail construction started in 1888 and ended in 1892. It was encouraged by Bolivian President Aniceto Arce, who believed Bolivia would flourish with a good transport system, but it was also constantly sabotaged by the local Aymara indigenous Indians who saw it as an intrusion into their lives. The trains were mostly used by the mining companies. In the 1940s, the mining industry collapsed, partly because of mineral depletion. Many trains were abandoned, producing the train cemetery. There are proposals to build a museum from the cemetery.

Nosso primeiro passeio no Deserto do Atacama foi para o Salar do Atacama, em uma pequena parte dele, já que o Salar tem mais de 300.000 metros quadrados e é o terceiro maior do mundo. O passeio partiu do Tierra Atacama, hotel que nos hospedamos no Chile e teve uma parada no pequeno povoado de Toconao. Essa parada foi essencial para matar a curiosidade da Vitória e da Giovana que queriam saber e ver como é a vida naquele deserto. Andamos pela pequena praça e vimos uma banca de artesanato. Parei alguns minutos para fotografar a igreja que tem a torre separada do salão. Segundo o guia, foi o jeito que a igreja encontrou na época de sua construção para respeitar os costumes locais. Do povoado fomos direto para o Salar do Atacama, veja todos os detalhes no post no blog nesse link

Salar de Atacama- Known for its white, salt surface that is produced by the evaporation of its water and its landscape that has been shaped throughout time by the elements (rain, wind, etc.). You can see various colors throughout the flats as a result of the minerals, clay, and a salt mixture. This is also a natural reserve for flamingos (although we did not see any). We did, however, see the brine shrimp that the flamingos eat that cause their feathers to change from grey to pink. Experiences over Things!

More than one-third of the world’s current supply of lithium comes from the world's driest desert. Lithium is an ultra-light metal used in electric car batteries, mobile phones and lap-tops. The lithium mines are located in the salt flats of the Salar de Atacama, in Chile. Demands for water are growing in the Salar region, but there's a problem, Reuters reports. No one knows for certain how much water there is in the region. In a study due in December, researchers are hoping to get a clearer idea of the crisis. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/9zCZ4q8srkA/in-chilean-desert-global-thirst-for-lithium-is-fueling-a-water-war-idUSKCN1LE16T http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Full Post: http://bit.ly/2uytEUH Ever since I started planning this trip, Salar De Uyuni was one of the places I dreamed of going to. If any of you are doing the same, I am sure it is one of the places on your must see list. After a rather average night staying at the Hotel Palacio de Sal, a 4-star hotel with one star Internet and 0-star management service, Chris and I met up to do the Salar De Uyuni Salt Flats. Almost everyone we spoke to told us that we wouldn’t get out there on our motorbikes as the wet season was just finished and it was a bit of a bog. However, we were pretty determined to get onto the famous Salar De Uyuni salt flats and then go and see the train graveyard. We were due to set off at first light to meet in the city and get as much information as possible. Chris was meeting me just outside of my hotel. We spent some time getting us much information as possible before we went out there. However, the locals were not very helpful. When we got to the meeting point where all of the 4-wheel drives were taking tourists. Again we were told we cannot go out at that point; there was quite a bit of water. We decided to take the advice of a local and go around the side and then onto the flats. This turned out to be bad advice; my bike was sliding everywhere and making little ground as the mud was thick under the surface and very sticky. Within about 5 minutes I got bogged. Then all of the sudden Sam and his mates arrived and talked us into going out. They told us it is only a few hundred meters of bog and then hard packed salt flats from there on. You could tell by their faces they had a great time. So they helped me and my bike get onto the harder stuff. I can tell you they worked their arses off to get my bike onto Salar De Uyuni. I cannot thank them enough. Wirth just Chris and I, it would have been impossible. Once we were on the salt flats, it was so much fun. We headed to the Dakar Monument and got some photos done. However, everyone wanted a ride on our bikes. I took a young girl and then a little boy and Chris and I knew we had to get out of there to get some nice riding in. All up we spent about 2 hours out there. I think under the conditions that were enough, as the bikes were getting a massive build up of salt. In hindsight, I think we both would have wanted more time out there. But we did it! The next day we went out to the Train Cemetary, which was ok, it looks pretty cool, but there is not much to do there after about 30 minutes. Salar de Uyuni Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat. It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desert like, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. The landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations, and cacti-studded islands. It is otherworldly expanse can be observed from central Incahuasi Island. Though wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, it harbors many pink flamingos.From Wikipedia Train Cemetery – Uyuni, Bolivia One of the major tourist attractions of the area is an antique train cemetery. It is located 3 km outside Uyuni and is connected to it by the old train tracks.

In this interview, Tim Fernback, President and CEO of LiCo Energy Metals, speaks with Hannah Bernard about the company’s various lithium and cobalt properties. Tim discusses how the company has two lithium properties in Nevada, which is the only producing region in North America for lithium. Moreover, the company also has properties in Chile, specifically in the Salar de Atacama, where they are one of four companies located in the area. Lastly, the company also has cobalt properties in Ontario, which is the second most favorable jurisdiction in the world for mining. Tim expands on the company’s exploration program in Ontario by noting that their drilling at the Teledyne and Glencore properties is almost complete. LiCo recently acquired a property from Glencore, which has been historically drilled in 1980, and they feel that with the combination of the two properties, they can generate promising resources. The company has had 32 holes drilled, and about just under 4,000m of drilling, and they’ve already started receiving results. Fortunately, the outcome has gone exactly as planned, with LiCo finding cobalt camp style mineralization in all of the drill holes drilled so far. The cobalt grade was as high as about 7.5% in the drill core. Tim looks forward to what the new year will bring as the company is looking to increase the size of its drill program at Teledyne and Glencore. LiCo’s (TSXV: LIC) properties are in great areas for finding resources and are well-structured to find cobalt and lithium. Investors should look forward to the year ahead, as this is a true energy metal company.

According to a report by Reuters, earlier this year, the world's two largest lithium producers publicly celebrated deals with Chile's government that will allow them to increase output of the ultralight battery metal from the Atacama desert. The two companies reportedly said they were confident they could significantly boost output without drawing more than their current quotas of lithium-rich brine that has accumulated over millennia in pools beneath the Atacama. Albemarle CEO Luke Kissam told investors in August, “I don’t see any issue with our ability to get (the brine) ... today, tomorrow and throughout the term of that agreement." http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/WgotLM-PbmM/a-water-fight-in-chiles-atacama-raises-questions-over-lithium-mining-idUSKCN1MS1L8 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

The Atacama Desert is a plateau in South America, covering a 1000-km strip of land on the Pacific coast, west of the Andes mountains. It is the driest nonpolar desert in the world. According to estimates, the Atacama Desert occupies 105000 km2, or 128000 km2 if the barren lower slopes of the Andes are included. Most of the desert is composed of stony terrain, salt lakes , sand, and felsic lava that flows towards the Andes. Geographically, the aridity of the Atacama is explained by it being situated between two mountain chains of sufficient height to prevent moisture advection from either the Pacific or the Atlantic Oceans, a two-sided rain shadow.... http://www.wikividi.com ____________________________________ Shortcuts to chapters: 00:00:58 Setting 00:02:15 Climate 00:03:07 Aridity 00:05:29 Comparison to Mars 00:07:07 Flora 00:08:34 Fauna 00:10:49 Human presence ____________________________________ Copyright WikiVidi.

Salar de Uyuni (or Salar de Tunupa) is the world's largest salt flat at 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi). It is located in the Potosí and Oruro departments in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes, and is at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above mean sea level. The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar.

Salar de Uyuni is also a climatological transitional zone, for towering tropical cumulus congestus and cumulus incus clouds that form in the eastern part of the massive salt flat during the summer, cannot permeate beyond the salt flat's considerably more arid western edges, near the Chilean border and the Atacama Desert. Salar is salt flat in Spanish. Uyuni originates from the Aymara language and means a pen (enclosure), and is also the name for a town of 10,600 people (which serves as a gateway for tourists visiting the Salar). Thus Salar de Uyuni can be loosely translated as a salt flat with enclosures, the latter possibly referring to the "islands" of the Salar; or as "salt flat at [the town named] 'pen for animals'". Aymara legend tells that the mountains Tunupa, Kusku and Kusina, which surround the Salar, were giant people. Tunupa married Kusku, but Kusku ran away from her with Kusina. Grieving Tunupa started to cry while breast-feeding her son. Her tears mixed with milk and formed the Salar. Many locals consider the Tunupa an important deity and say that the place should be called Salar de Tunupa rather than Salar de Uyuni. One major tourist attraction is an antique train cemetery. It is 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) outside Uyuni and is connected to it by the old train tracks.

It's a cemetery for trains, for locomotives. And it's so big that it looks as though all of the trains in South America were moved to Uyuni, Bolivia, to chug their last chug. Filled with hollowed out bodies that have completely rusted over and other remains, the "Great Train Graveyard" can be found on the otherwise deserted outskirts of Uyuni, a small trading region high in the Andean plain. Uyuni has long been known as an important transportation hub in South America and it connects several major cities. In the early 19th century, big plans were made to build an even bigger network of trains out of Uyuni, but the project was abandoned because of a combination of technical difficulties and tension with neighboring countries. The trains and other equipment were left to rust and fade out of memory. Most of the trains that can be found in the Graveyard date back to the early 20th century and were imported from Britain. In other places in the world, the mighty steel trains would have held up better. The salt winds that blow over Uyuni, which hosts the world's largest salt plain, have corroded all of the metal. Without guards or even a fence, these pieces were picked over and vandalized long ago. Located some 3 km outside the trading town of Uyuni, in southwest Bolivia, lies an antique train cemetery. In the past, Uyuni was an important transport junction, connecting key cities in the region, but plans to turn the town into an even greater railway hub died an early death. Construction on the network was started in 1888. It was encouraged by the then Bolivian President Aniceto Arce, who believed Bolivia would flourish with a good transport system, but it was also constantly sabotaged by the local Aymara indigenous Indians who saw it as an intrusion into their lives. The trains were mostly used by the mining companies. But in the 1940s, when the mining industry collapsed, partly due to the mineral depletion, many trains were abandoned thereby producing the train cemetery. Most travellers who visit Uyuni, located at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above sea level up in the Andes of Bolivia are probably there for the famous Salar de Uyuni, the word's largest salt flat which is used for calibrating the altimeters of Earth observation satellites. Another tourist attraction of Uyuni though is the 'Cementerio de trenes', the antique train cemetary, 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) outside the town. From the end of the 19th century till this day, Uyuni has been an important transportation hub for trains. The rail lines, constructed between 1888 and 1892, were built by British engineers who were invited by the British-sponsored Antofagasta and Bolivia Railway Companies. For the next decades the trains were used for carrying minerals from the Andes mountains to the Pacific Ocean ports. Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Kuch-Alag-Kuch-Hatke-170934420121320/

The chief executive of European Lithium, Steve Kesler, discusses the mining company’s upcoming AIM listing. Speaking to Proactive, Kesler said the “timing is perfect” to list on London’s junior market and explains the decision to use a crowdfunding platform as part of the IPO process. The £5mln cash from the fundraise will be used to develop the firm's Wolfsberg project in Austria.

It is a relative of the llama, and is now believed to be the wild ancestor of domesticated alpacas, which are raised for their coats. Vicuñas produce small amounts of extremely fine wool, which is very expensive because the animal can only be shorn every three years, and has to be caught from the wild. When knitted together, the product of the vicuña's wool is very soft and warm. The Inca valued vicuñas highly for their wool, and it was against the law for anyone but royalty to wear vicuña garments; today the vicuña is the national animal of Peru and appears in the Peruvian coat of arms.
