After having seen Laguna Colorada, Laguna Verde, Hedionda and all the others coming from Uyuni, this very last stop before the Chilean border is less impressive. It is a nice lake with volcanoes in the background, but not as stunning as the previous ones.

This lake is stunning, the view take you a bit by surprise if you come form San Pedro de Atacama as it is not far from the Bolivian border at all. Quite high, so take it easy and drink lots of water but really beautiful.

The snowy mountains behind the Laguna make a wonderful backdrop. It is a very beautiful lake and certainly lives up to the name of White Lake as there are heaps of borax around the lake. In winter it can be very cold

The lake gets its name (White Lagoon) from the high quantity of the mineral borax in the water, making it seem white. The reflections of the mountains in the water are almost perfect, but a dark blue sky will seem a lighter blue in the...More

There is wildlife in this lagoon wjich is right next to the Green Lagoon which has arsenic in it. In summer sun the colour is not as spectacular as it would be in shade.
