Laguna Colorada, Uyuni

4.8
#1 of 31 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.

  • Out of this world, The colors and views are spectacular! Watch out for the altitude and cold though. Stay hydrated! Put on plenty of layers and keep some altitude pills with you just in case. Some recommend taking some before you arrive but we managed without them.
  • It is an extraordinary place. There are thousands of flamingos. The water looks otherworldly.
  • Never seen something like this before. Was spectacular but also extremely windy.
  • Colors—and layers of color—are a visual treat of Laguna Colorada in Bolivia, as can be seen in the accompanying photo below. The sprinkling of flamingos and the ripples of the water are the details that make this image and the infinitely more beautiful reality it seeks to capture come together.
  • Beautiful lake, saw hundreds of flamingos. Easy walk from the carpark to the viewpoint. Also got to see a herd of llamas beside the lake!
