This Friday I’m hosting a photograph taken in Laguna Hedionda in Bolivia. By Bianca Bauza from NomadBiba Blog.
Bianca is a super energetic Girl to travel the world in search of adventure! I really enjoy her blog and crazy stories she gets herself into.
This photograph spots my eye because of the colours. I do not know why, but I love the blue and yellow set!
Once I have read this article in a travel magazine about colours in travels! That you should travel to the countries which colours are the most appealing to you. So if you like green and hate yellow, skip Saudi and go to Norway :)
Picture Story: Laguna Hedionda, Bolivia
As part of the Uyuni salt flats excursion, we visited Laguna Hedionda in Bolivia. Its name means the Stinking Lagoon in Spanish, it was named like that because of the sulphuric smell that emanates sometimes from its waters.
Luckily, when I visited it wasn’t that smelly; perhaps because it was winter and it was too cold. Also, the lagoon is situated at 4121 meters above sea level. The main attraction of this lagoon is the flocks of flamingoes that migrate to this area every year.
At this time, it was not a high season; but we saw a couple hundred birds in the lagoon. It was an impressive sight, seeing these pink wild birds standing in the blue shallow waters of the lagoon, with all the snowy peaks in the background.
Despite their delicate appearance, the Andean flamingoes are tough birds living part of the year in these high altitude lagoons with very low temperatures.
The Laguna Hedionda was one of the many surreal landscapes that we saw on our excursion to the Uyuni salt flats, if you are looking for inspiration here is a perfect guide to Salar de Uyuni Bolivia.
