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.

Indeed the most colorful lake of southern Bolivia. When we approached the Laguna Colorada the surface of the lake appeared, but when we were standing on the shore of the lake, to look at the flamingo's, the color of the lake had changed into orange.
