If you've searched images of Bolivia before, there's a good chance that you've seen images of a single volcanic mountain with a bright pink lake full of flamingos in the foreground. This is Laguna Colorada. Located in the southwestern-most pocket of the country in the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve, this is Bolvia's most visited protected area due to it's staggering beauty and varied terrain.

A blood red lake, with mountain backdrop, close to the Chilean border, Laguna Colorada is a favourite on the Salar de Uyuni circuit. Most tour companies based in the town of Uyuni will offer a stop here as part of a three day salt flats tour. It is possible to see flamingoes, who frequent the lagoon.

Visited on the second day of the Uyuni Salt Flats tour, this lagoon is a bright red lake where lots of pink flamingoes live during the warm months. It gets very windy in the afternoon, so it is best to hike up there in the early hours, leaving no later than 3:00 pm. Worth the walk and the wind!

If you decide to do a salt flats tour from Bolivia, then you will also get the opportunity to visit several incredible lakes which are dotted around the Bolivian and Chilean Border. The surrounding scenery is absolutely stunning, with the lakes being the perfect icing on top of the cake. The two showcase lakes are arguably Laguna Colorada, an amazing red coloured lake, and Laguna Verde. However, just about every lake has its own unique colour, making them all equally spectacular.
