Laguna Hedionda, Uyuni

Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Laguna Hedionda, literally the "Stinking Lake," sits in the Andean Altiplano and attracts many pink and white flamingoes. The lake's unappealing name comes from its high sulfur content, which endows the water with that peculiar odor. Rest assured, with the backdrop of snow-covered mountains and countless exotic birds to look at, you won't mind the smell for long. Very limited accommodations remain available near the lake, as the area is largely uninhabited and untouched. Make Laguna Hedionda a part of your Uyuni vacation plans using our Uyuni trip generator.
