Laguna Colorada, Uyuni

4.7
#1 of 9 in Outdoors in Uyuni
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.

  • within the conventional circuit offering general agencies in uyuni's travelled to the antiplanicas Lakes, the Red is the more beautiful, the wind moves the sediments and reflected the red tone with the celestial patches, flamingos end by complete a unique show! Although seen from above the terrain offers different points of observation... worthy for contemplation! recommendation as a whole experience in bolivia carry suitable shoes, enough water...

  • The pond is multicolored and of great beauty. Has access with roads without asphalt precarious but worth it. Charming.

  • No way to say ~ Super beautiful ~ Blue sky, Red Lake, Sunshine and red 鶴 ~ to the scene is a whole amazing sighs unceasingly, although the wind is very big, but hinder people want to go down, close to the lake, if there is a chance to see the sunrise.

  • If you can get to it it's worth doing! We took a five hour drive (each way) to get here stopping along the way at various cool sights and it was wonderful to see. Try to go on a windy day as the pink is more explicit
  • Pink color lake due to microorganism is very beautiful. The lake is big. It looks liked the pink lake in Australia.
  • Spectacular. Red borax lake with pink flamingos during certain parts of the year. The landscape around it is just outta this world !
  • Just as spectacular as expected, it's just a damn shame that the pictures of it do not do it justice. It is way better. Most good tour groups should take you here after the Salt Flats!
  • Colors—and layers of color—are a visual treat in the photograph below of Laguna Colorada in Bolivia. The sprinkling of flamingos and the ripples of the water are the details that make this image come together.
