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.

  • The pond is beautiful, however in drier seasons-most of the year-obviously the pond does not have the beauty seen in pictures. Anyway, it's worth the trek through the region.

  • Is one of the more attractive of the Park Avaroa. However, when we visited it water not was colorada per se, at least not from the intense red imagined. The view is equally beautiful. Near the lagoon entrance is properly reserve and corresponding 150 Bolivians are paid. If you want, you can seal there your passport free of charge. The entry ballot must not lose it because they require it again to exit. It is important to have shelter, protection from the Sun, water and hidrantante cream.

  • Unfortunately, it's an attraction very dependent on the weather. For the laguna stay is necessary to wind + Sun red. I'm so lucky that it was raining and windy, not so she barely had a pink coloring, in addition to the flamingos are far apart.
