Laguna Canapa, Uyuni

4.8
#6 of 8 in Parks in Uyuni
Absorb the stunning vistas of Laguna Canapa, a picturesque salt lake that seems to be of the deepest blues. As home to a large population of pink flamingos, the area presents an excellent opportunity to see the elegant birds in natural habitat. Bring a camera to capture the natural beauty and remote calm, along with flamingos. Note: expect a potentially unpleasant odor from the lake due to its high sulphur content.

  • Like most lagoons along the tourist route of Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama, so including those of Canapa is characterized by a high salt content with appropriate efflorescence on the shore, a sparse grass of Tufts of vegetation in the area, and at least in the warm Season by many flamingos from (Phoenicopterus chilensis). But all this is no unique selling point, because the route leads past several such sites. Nevertheless, the lagoon and their red feathered summer migrants are ideally suited for an e little break on the rüttelig-long and very arduous route.
