Bolivia bucket list addition: ‘Laguna Verde’.

02 Aug

beautiful planet Earth

 

This inspiring image/photo came from another travel blog – Thanks for sharing! 😮

From Wikipedia: “The Laguna Verde, meaning neaon Green lake,[1] covers an area of 1700 ha, and a narrow causeway divides it into two parts. It is at the southeastern extremity of the Reserve Eduardo Avaroa and Bolivia itself. It has mineral suspensions of arsenic and other minerals which renders colour to the lake waters. Its colour varies from turquoise to dark emerald depending on the disturbance caused to sediments in the lake by winds. In the backdrop of the lake is the inactive volcano Volcan Licancibur (elevation 5868m), which is the near perfect shape of cone.[2] It is believed that an ancient crypt used to be at its peak. Icy winds are a common phenomenon here and lake waters can attain temperatures as low as -56 degree C but because of its chemical composition its waters still remains in a liquid state. It is 30 km from Laguna Palques.[3][4]

The laguna verde is well known for its spectacular scenery and hot springs.”
