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.

Despite being more a lagoon formed hundreds of years ago by volcanic activity in the region, your size and beauty make it a spectacle the part along with the flamingos, one of the typical local birds, with their vivid colours and stunning which feed on their waters. A feature of the lagoon, is the sulfur smell that emanates from her, but that is not enough to bother.
Die Flamingos zieren sich nicht und stellen sich ins rechte Licht für die Fotofreunde. Hier kann gut ein Picknick abgehalten werden. Immer einen Stop wert. more »The flamingos do not adorn themselves and are put in the right light for photo enthusiasts. Here, a picnic can be held well. Always a stop value.
Apesar do nome, foi uma das que, ao caminhas por suas bordas, vi as cores mais bonitas na água. Estava bastante frio, e tinham muitos flamingos. more »Despite its name, was one of that when you walk by their edges, I saw the most beautiful colors in the water. It was pretty cold, and had lots of flamingos.
Beautiful lake full of flamingos. The wind is very powerful.
Truly amazing place to come to get a real close up look at the flamingos around. The smell by the water is pretty awful but that's the price you pay for it's beauty. Highly recommended.
Beautiful lakes route, ideal for touring Jeep stopping.
I loved knowing the colorada lagoon
