Nous avons passé la nuit à côté des anciens trains seul au monde.Report Check-In
Dormimos una noche en el cementerio de trenes y nos sentimos seguros. En el día hay muchos tours 4x4 que vienen y algunos puestos de comida y artesanías, pero a la noche estábamos solos. Se puso a llover mucho cuando estuvimos y aunque la ruta está con mucho relieves, conseguimos salir sin problema despacio.Report Check-In
We spent a very quiet night here.

Dormimos una noche acá, muy tranquilo. A la mañana temprano escuchamos y vimos el tren pasar.Report Check-In
quiet a good night and spot before entering the salar, only a real train pass during night, doing lot of noise.Report Check-In
Very quiet night and great to visit the train cemeteryReport Check-In
Had a quiet night at this spot behind the train wrecks. Very few cars drove by. Spectacular during sunset. At 1 am a real train passed and woke us up afterwards again very quiet.Report Check-In
Spent a quiet night here. No one bothered us. No facilities and no wind protection.Report Check-In
We stayed here one night. Unfortunately around 5 AM police knocked to our car and wanted to check our papers. After having a look they left. First tourist car arrived at 6 AM and people selling souvenirs / food arrived at 7 AM. Nice spot but it's better to find another place.Report Check-In
Great place to spend the night. They did dig a trench all around the place but we found a way through at this GPS point -20.483762, -66.839472. And the spot to cross the rails is at this GPS point -20.483838, -66.840777Report Check-In
Great spot to spend the night, very quiet - and you can even meet fellow overlanders. You can park pretty much wherever you want. Some tourists start coming around 8am, then the tours around 11amReport Check-In
Very nice to visit the train graveyard in the evening. No other tourists. We had a quiet night.Report Check-In
Still possible to drive in and park right amongst the trains (use Google Satellite view and you can see the road to take). very cool spot!Report Check-In
It is very nice during sunset. After sunset gets pretty cold but night photos are amazing here! Quiet during night. And you cannot be next to the train due to a long hole next to the trains.Report Check-In
Not the most pleasant place. Kind of spooky and dirty. Police came in the night to check on us. As they saw we are just turists they let us stay.Report Check-In
Good place for one night or more.
It’s now impossible to park close to train.
Some people visit the cemetery until 7PM and from 9AM in the morning
Great spot, no one at night. Very winfy though, the car didn't stop moving and we were parked behind a small construction. Wind calmed down around 2AM.Report Check-In
UPDATE: Still a great place to stay but a trench has been dug around the south side of the site making it impossible to park amongst the trains.
I’ll post some updated photos.Report Check-In
Good and safe place to stay a night before heading to the salar.
We let our van parked there (on the very end of the train graveyard) during the afternoon to spend some time in the village of Uyuni. We came back around 20h00 and found our vehicle as we had left it.
Good place for overnight parking. Quiet until the tours arrive. Some trains at night.🚂Report Check-In
Fun place with beautiful sunset. Lots of trash as described but that's Bolivia. Quiet night there. The wind died at night. We stayed at the very end of the train graveyard so the first tours didn't bother us.Report Check-In
its a nice place to stay. sheltered from the wind behind the trains. all arround there's a lot of trash but it didnt disturbed us to much while sleeping. it was quite at night.. no trains at all. a nice location for good photos and very free.Report Check-In
Awesome place to camp, the sunsets are incredible here!Report Check-In
Lugar muy tranquilo junto en el cementerio de trenes. Algo de ruido por la noche por un par de trenes lejanos y camiones.Report Check-In
Lugar super tranquilo e seguro para dormir, em meio aos trens abandonados, procure chegar quando estiver claro ainda, o caminho é meio difícil. As 9h da manhã começaram a chegar os turistas.Report Check-In
Great photos at sunset! We stayed overnight and had a really fun evening with antoethono.. love meeting other overlanders along the way!Report Check-In
Trains are crap and the area is a sea of trash (reminds me of northern coastal Peru in a bad way), but there's a big motocross track if you want to tool around on a dirt / mountain bike.Report Check-In
Nice place for the night with some wind protection. Good photo shots at sunset and sunrise. Tourist buses arrive around 10:00am, enjoy the peace while you can!Report Check-In
A fantastic camp right near the abandoned trains. It was a ghost town when we arrived at approx 8:30pm and we had the trains to ourselves the next morning until approx 9am when the tours started to roll in. The camping area is a bit trashy. But if you have made it this far, you've likely learned to overlook some plastic bags and Coke bottles ;) Well worth the time to visit!Report Check-In
This was a great place to take some fun photos. It was incredibly cold when we camped so be prepared. There is lots of trash around and graffiti on the trains.Report Check-In
Amazing place for photographers, train lovers and everyone how's into old abandoned stuff. Yes, it's just trains parked in the middle of nowhere, but what did you expect?
Very sad, that most of the stuff got graffiti sprayed on right now,but still a great place to check out and explore
looks like rubbish... its just trains left almost in the middle of townReport Check-In
We spend 2 nights there. Peaceful and quiet nights. Tourists is coming around 10:30 am and park their cars in the other side on railroadReport Check-In
nice quiet place to spend the night. did not meet anyone beside of some tourists on the trainsReport Check-In
We just stayed the night here from 9pm to 9.30pm. No people, the place was very quiet. Did not see a garbage dump, but as it is Bolivia there is a little bit of trash everywhere. There's a small covered, clean building where you can sit, cook or pitch a tent. Quite windy but the building provides some shelter.Report Check-In
This a sad place, far away from the center of the city and close to a garbage dump. Local people told us that it is not a secure place to sleep there in the night.Report Check-In
Vert quiet, can be very windy at night.Report Check-In
Good overnight stay for Uyuni. Quiet at night. No vendors in the morning, just some tour trucks. No facilities.Report Check-In
Stayed here three nights, quiet at night. Heaps of 4x4 tours arrive around 10am.Report Check-In
OK place to stay in Uyuni, some wind cover during the night, but not much (we have a rooftop tent but opted to stay inside the car). There are small covered stalls where vendors sell their stuff during the day - you can go there and cook sheltered in the evening if the wind is strong - that was nice.Report Check-In
You can use the deserted rooms at night, but remember, in the morning there are people coming to use them as shops.
A lot of rubbish on the way to the train graveyard. Feels like a dumpster.
Good place to spend the night before heading to the Salar. Cold and very windy! FREEReport Check-In
Best place to wild camp in town thanks to wind protected rooms where during the day cholitas sell turisty stuff. Clean and quiet. Spent 3 nights there. Tours usualy come to visit the place between 7:30 and 8 am.Report Check-In
We camped here before leaving for Uyuni and again before the Southwest Circuit with two other couples behind the box car with the painting on it. Very quiet and peaceful. Great photo op spot and less creepy if you arent camping alone.Report Check-In
Stayed here with two more travelers, seeking shelter by the houses. It's a wide open desert stretch and was windy and cold. Great antique rusty trains around to explore. We were told the vendors come around 9am. Free, no facilities. A few trains passed at night but it was quiet and nice overall.Report Check-In
Nice quiet place to spend the night. COLD at night (low of -10C) in June! FreeReport Check-In
