Laguna Colorada

Laguna Colorada

Laguna Colorada is a shallow salt lake at an elevation of 4.278m (14,035ft) above the sea level, located in the southwest of the altiplano of Bolivia.

The lake lies within Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve. The road to the lake is gravel. 4x4 recommended. The climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. Most people feel altitude sickness at around 2,500-2,800 meters. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
