Water Body
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.

  • Mind you, You could suffer from high altitude disease. Do not run or move quickly at this place. Hence, the place is beyond amazing! You could lose your words to describe how beautiful it is!  more »
  • We arrived at Laguna Cañapa because it is way to Laguna Colorada. The place is desert, literally you'll only see glaciers, hills of Brown and red colors and a large lagoon with many flamingos on it. We surround the lagoon to have the best footage of the Flemish, the lagoon and the snowy peaks, all this great landscape looks like a postcard. They can be all the time who want to, flamingos perceive that someone is coming and immediately boost flight in Flock, that picture is beautiful, the birds flying in the sky contrast with its quirky and stylized form accompanied by those beautiful colors that adorn them. This stop is not to be missed, is the first stop where you will see these beautiful birds.

  • When I went it was cloudless and the lagoon over the landscape of snow-capped mountains is too cute! To me I loved it, is worth the penalty go to visit it.
