The salt is so concentrated that once the water is gone it's solid as ground. Make sure that in order to see all this amazingness, you go just before sunset and toward the end of their summer season (our winter in the northern hemisphere) when the lake is not full.
Make sure not to get your foot stuck in one of these salty holes, like happened to a guy on the trip, lol.
Peep the moon! This place... a must-see before you die.
