South America is one of the most stunning and bio-diverse land of the earth. It’s a sub-continent of America with more than 371,090,000 of world’s population. It offers a wide variety of adventures along with its magnificent beaches, icebergs, diverse islands, mountain series and huge swathes of rainforest. Simultaneously, the fantastic food and profuse hospitality may impress travelers and influence them to a majestic tour to the most attractive places.
Before proceeding to the places of South America I’ll also recommend a place named Sajek Valley in South Asia. I recently visited the place & passed some awesome moments there. And according to my experience I’ll suggest this place to you.
However, here are 8 beautiful destinations on your visit to South America:
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat located in South West of Bolivia. It offers a number of lifetime experiences to the visitors, impressive outlooks, memorable visual illusions, grand salt hotels, photo taking opportunities and some unworldly views.
This incredible place used to be adorned in different ways based on seasons. During rainy season its surface is covered by about 20 centimeters of water and that is still drivable. Water on the surface of the ground reflects the sky on it like a mirror that creates this land more magnificent. But in the dry season it becomes a flat landscape and sometimes formats an octagonal shape in this land of salt.
I think once you visit there, undoubtedly this will become an impressive and unforgettable Bolivian landscape.
Mount FitzRoy, Argentina
Mount FitzRoy is the highest mountain which rises 3,405 m. and it is located in the Southern Patagonia Ice Field, on the edge between Argentina and Chile. It is one of the thorniest mountains to climb the summit, which demands strong techniques for climbers.
This was originally known as “Chaltén” to the locals, which means “Smoking Mountain”. This mountain is always looking like it is bordered by clouds, which always give the mountain a smoking look. It’s a worthwhile destination for the professional rock climbers and hikers where they will be able to discover the amazing granite wonderland, near the apex. If you once dare to arrive near to the apex, it is quite enough for site seeing.

So, don’t forget to bring a water camera for capturing the water depth images to add an extra pleasure in your trip. Ultimately, the Galapagos Islands are considered as paradise of nature lovers and one of a kind tour destination.
