Uyuni Things to Do: 165 reviews and 342 photos
One of the most stunning lakes of the area, the Laguna Verde is at the base of the massive Licancabur Volcano. The lake turns emerald green when it is windy. The colour is caused by the various minerals in the lake and it is interesting to note that there are quite high levels of arsenic in here - hence the lack of the usual flamingos around the other lakes. Licancabur has an elevation of 5900m, and the Laguna Verde is at 4300m.
