Experience – Laguna Blanca, Bolivia.

Laguna Blanca is a salt lake in the Sur Lípez Province of the Potosí Department, Bolivia. The characteristic white color of the water is caused by the high amount of minerals suspended in it. Laguna Blanca has an elevation of 4,350 meters (14,270 ft.) and a surface area of 10.9 km². The lake is 5.6 kilometers (3.5 mi) long and 3.5 kilometers (2.2 mi) wide.

Only a narrow corridor separates Laguna Blanca from the smaller Laguna Verde, near the Licancabur volcano. Both are within the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve.
