Laguna Hedionda is definitely the best of the lakes to see flamingos close up. Because of the hotel being near the flamingos don’t edge away as you approach in the way that flamingos on some of the other lakes do.
The lake’s name means “Stinking Lake” and that is actually what it does. Typical sulphate smell, but not too bad. Good to take pictures. Advice to take a zoom lens for landscape and close-ups of the flamingo’s.
the name comes from the smell of sulfur but is the opposite of the incredible beauty of the place. one of the most beautiful altiplanic lagoons we visited. without doubt one of the important points in bird watching
