Water Body Nature / Park
Budi Lake from the Mapudungun word Füzi which means salt, is a tidal brackish water lake located near the coast of La Araucanía Region, southern Chile. The lake is part of the boundaries between Saavedra and Teodoro Schmidt commune.Budi Lake is among the few lakes of the west coast of the Americas that have seasonal inflows of sea water. Another difference to many Chilean lakes is that Budi Lake is not of glacial origin and does not lie in the Andes mountain range. Budi Lake is above a coastal plain just south of Nahuelbuta Range and north of the Valdivian Coastal Range where the Chilean Coast Range is very low.The lake was formed by tectonic movements and sea eustatic sea level changes.According to the census of 2002, the zone around the lake is one the poorest parts of La Araucanía Region, Chile's poorest region in turn. The 13,275 persons who live around the lake form 3,087 families with 30 years as average age. 40% of the population is under 18 years old and 73.2% declare to be Mapuches.

  • I'm from temuco very close to budi lake, great place for make birdwatching more to 100 kind of birds and is the only salty lake of south america. Lucky.  more »
  • I was there in winter, beautiful rocky beach and tremendous surf. Good for building a fire on the beach and enjoying the beach all to yourself.  more »
  • This saltwater lake, has its mystery. No one has led me from where comes your salt water, if it comes from the sea, a nitrate, etc... all nearby roads bear the name of Budi Lake. With great views, it is worth visiting it.
