Laguna Canapa, Uyuni

(4.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.

  • Included in the parade tour de Uyuni by Jeep out of San Pedro until Uyuni, as is one of the last to be visited lagoons, is somewhat wronged, because it's a bit the same, lagoons and flamingos, but if every laguna has a particularity, this for example has a distinctive vegetation, and is a great spot to shoot the flamingos.

  • As well as the other lagoons of the salar, here is also made a shutdown. Worth a walk around the Lake and take pictures. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and with a lot of flamingos. Worth the visit!
