The Train Cemetery

The Train Cemetery is not a train museum, even one with limited maintenance and development like the one in Putumayo.  No, the Train Cemetery in Uyuni is where trains end up after they die.  Don’t let that put you off, though, it’s a blast.

The cemetery is an open air space with the remains of numerous trains. In most cases, they are just sitting there waiting for someone to climb on them,  but welders and other artisans have had their way with some, and there are a couple of swings and other such as a result.

There’s not much more to it, but that’s enough. Most people will likely enjoy a short stop here and some unique photos can be shot of the  metalic hulks.

As at many tourist attractions in Bolivia, safety is not really a consideration.  In this case, you probably want to ensure that your tetanus vaccination is up to date.
