Laguna Colorada is a mineral Lake

Laguna Colorada is a mineral lake located in the Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve in the southwestern part of Bolivia near the border with Chile.
The red-brown color of the water is due to sedimentary rocks, as well as the pigmentation of some algae growing there. Borax islands can also be found in the lake.
The lagoon area is home to a large number of James’ flamingos. Also here you can find Andean and Chilean flamingos, but in small numbers.
