Ojo del Inca, Potosi

4.0
Take a restorative dip in Ojo del Inca, a natural thermal pool steeped in history and located in the eye of a volcano. This natural pool forms an almost-perfect circle. Its cone-shaped bottom measures 1 m (3.2 ft) deep around the edges, with the center going down to about 45 m (150 ft). Temperatures in the water here reach around 35 C (95 F), and are said to have therapeutic benefits. Rumor has it Inca kings traveled here all the way from Cusco, Peru to bathe.

  • It is easy and quite cheap to get here from Potosi with Tarapaya/miraflores bound sharedbus near Mercado Chuquima for Bob5/way. Its an easy walk up from the road. I think the lagoon is not safe to swi...  more »
  • It is a unique and stunning, magical place, the water temperature is ideal, unfortunately poorly exploited tourist, difficult vehicle access, worse on foot, there is no signage, and there is no where to eat or taking shelter from the Sun or bad weather, has a swimming pool tiny, they do not leave to enter, it is a pity that they do not know this potential

  • We knew that in October 2017 had died a person on the Lake; but we wanted to go to do some trekking around these parts. The guardian well clear that is closed, let us not allow the entrance to the Lake, there is a go of thorns that will not let you cross. Go it surrounds the eye to 20 meters. 500 metres further down there are two natural pools with the same water in which one you can get in 3 or 5 bolivianos. Warm. Transportation is great; It costs 5 bolivianos and caught in the market. You can go walk to Miraflores, they are about 20-30 minutes.

  • Nice place but prohibitted to enter the lake due to too dangerous
  • Very beautiful place and surrounded by beautiful landscapes. The road that connects the city of Potosí to the Ojo del Inca is good and quite pretty, being an attractive. Speaking from the scene, the Ojo del Inca itself is very nice and keeps the natural aspect, but is forbidden to enter it because of the recent deaths that occurred on the site. But the locals, not to lose tourists, built artificial pools hot for use. The sites are also a boring part of the place, because they're in your walk in search of money, sometimes even being nice, but once you give a money they disappear.
