The red lagoon is absolutely amazing, there are flamingos galore and there is even a small observation hut to get out of the cold.

Usually the first stop inside the Eduardo Avaroa national reserve. It's an incredible view when the algal blooms turn the water red and a great place to get some pictures of the flamingos that live in this area.

We arrived there early in the morning to catch the sun rising over the lagoon and watch the mountain and water change colour which was incredible. The amount of flamingos was fantastic; just beautiful.

The Red Lake is so called due to the colour created by droppings from the many thousands of flamingos which inhabit this waterway. The views are amazing and you can move around various parts of the lake to get a different perspective.
