A landscape photographer's dream in Bolivia
Team member Chris takes an unforgettable journey to the high altitude flamingo-filled lagoons of the Bolivian Altiplano.
Lagoons of the Southern Altiplano
The entire southern part of Bolivia, which links the Atacama Desert in Chile to the Salar de Uyuni, offers some of the most incredible scenery in Latin America and is a landscape photographers dream. Six beautiful lagoons, of all shapes, sizes and colours, glisten below clear blue skies, reflecting the mountains and volcanoes which stand watch over them and welcoming hundreds of extremely rare breeds of flamingos. In between are two arid deserts and a surprising variety of birds and mammals.
Set within Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve, at 4,300 metres above sea level, Laguna Colorada is a flash of crimson amid a largely harsh and silvery landscape. Tinged red by algae, the lake is no more than 3 foot deep and rich with plankton, attracting three different types of flamingos that regularly populate it.
