Reviews of Laguna Blanca

Only a few kilometres from Laguna Verde, Laguna Blanca is a salt lake located in the heart of the outstanding National Reserve of Andean Wildlife, Eduardo Avaroa.

My suggestion:
Be careful not to frighten the wild animals that live in this special area. Take photos sparingly and from a distance.
My review

A wild area surrounded by scenery with a thousand and one colours: this is what the surprising region of Sud Lípez in Bolivia, very close to the Chilean border, has to offer.

To discover the natural jewels of southern Bolivia, head to the National Reserve of Andean Wildlife, Eduardo Avaroa. Just like Laguna Colorado and Laguna Verde, Laguna Blanca is dominated by the Licancabur volcano. As the name suggests, this saltwater expanse is white. Go and discover Laguna Blanca around midday: the colours are even more vibrant when the sun is at its peak. Indeed, it's the minerals hidden just 50cm deep at the bottom of the lagoon that help to give it this milky look.

You'll feel alone in the world in this deserted region where fauna and flora reign supreme. After having come to your senses, head to Laguna Verde which is just 10km away. A journey to the heart of nature surrounded by luxury, tranquillity and voluptuousness.
