Top contributor Jturner created this stunning drone video of a very different side of Bolivia, one far from the Andes Mountains and the salt flats that many associate with this South American country.  It was filmed near Rurrenabaque, a small town in the Beni River in the Department (state) of Beni, in the northern part of the country.  Here is lowland rainforest in the Amazon River Basin; much like its neighbor Peru, there is an "Andes Bolivia" and an "Amazon Bolivia" which offer vastly different landscapes.  This video was a DVOW nominee in June, 2019.

Train Cemetery of Uyuni

Contributor LA.Drones created this amazing drone video of a train cemetery in southwestern Bolivia.  The city of Uyuni is the largest city in the region, which sits on the great Antiplano plateay and is also home to the Uyuni Salt Flats.  When the area's critical mining industry collapsed in the 1940's, the local railroads collapsed too.  Uyuni being the main rail junction, the trains ended up being abandoned just outside of the city, resulting in what you'll see in the video.

Did you know the world’s largest salt flat is in the Andes Mountain Range? The nearly 11k square-kilometer (6,8k square mi.) landscape is what's left of a prehistoric lake that went dry in what is now southwest Bolivia. That lake left behind brilliant, bright-white salt, rock formations, and cacti-studded islands. This drone video of Salar de Uyuni at sunset by vieuma is absolutely stunning; the orange, pink and yellow light reflecting on the ground is a perfect mirror to what is above.

LAGUNA COLORADA

Here is a short but impactful aerial look at Bolivia's Laguna Colorada, compliments of Victoraroundtheworld.  This is a large salt lake in the southwestern part of the country on the great Bolivian Plain (often called the Altiplano, which also covers parts of Peru, Chile, and Argentina).  Its name ("Red Lagoon") comes from the color of the water, which is red due to geological factors and interaction with algae.  The lake is also known for its flamingoes, which you can see in the video.
