Beatiful lake full of flamingos. You can walk around here for a while and take loads of pictures but it can be windy sometimes

Fantastic experience. Flamingos in the Andes year round is truly something to behold. Got Salt tours will teach you the different types and which ones migrate.

Beautiful to see so many colorful lagunas with flamingos. You'll see all this if you do a salt flat tour.
