Laguna Colorada, Uyuni
(4.8/5 based on 460 reviews on the web)
See a natural wonder at Laguna Colorada, where waters that fill the lake are tinged red, caused by sediments as well as the coloration of algae. Visitors like to take photos of the natural contrast between the white borax islands and the red waters in which they sit. While in the area, watch several varieties of flamingoes perched among the scene of the self-contrasting lake, large salt flats around it, and the mountains in the distance. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Laguna Colorada by using our Uyuni holiday planner.

  • Just great, is a beautiful place, with many flamingos which allow you to photograph them very close, not deviate when one passes, there are also some call. The images are cover, yes muuuuucho wind and cold have to get very warm. The height also affects some people, have to walk slow

  • The most beautiful lagoon that you will encounter in the National Park Eduardo Avaroa. Populated by flamingos and blade, owes its red color to the algae present in the water. So don't miss out.

  • At the entrance of the reserve Eduardo Avaroa, where the ticket is very expensive (150 bolivianos per person) but is worth what it costs and, in addition, they put a special stamp in your Passport, Kingdom of flamingos and other birds, we come here-whatever your direction of travel-after enjoying more wonders in Bolivia, so that although high impact, the amazement is correspondingly reduced.
