Bolivia (Laguna Blanca) - Steve

The Andean Altiplano is the area where the Andes are widest. It is the largest plateau on Earth after Tibet. Most of the Altiplano is in Bolivia, but its northern part is in Peru and its southern part in Chile and Argentina. The Laguna Blanca salt lake is located in the Bolivian part of the Altiplano, in its southwestern part. It was named after its whitish color, caused by the high content of dissolved minerals. The lake lies at an altitude of 4,350 m and covers an area of 10.9 km2. It is a very dry and cold area. It is dominated by the volcano Licancabur and is surrounded by fantastic scenery full of colors. In this fairy-tale world, one feels alone, in the bosom of a beautiful natural scenery. Watching the noble movement of beautiful flamingos is something breathtaking. The area is part of the National Andean Animal Reserve Eduardo Abaroa. This unimaginable beauty annually attracts almost 30,000 visitors to the area.
