El Norte Grande Sights

Lago Chungará

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 11/24/2014

Fodor's Review

This lake sits on the Bolivian border at an amazing altitude of 4,600 m (15,100 ft) above sea level. Volcán Parinacota, at 6,330 m (20,889 ft), casts its shadow onto the lake's glassy surface. Hundreds of flamingos make their home here. There is a CONAF-run office at Lago Chungará on the highway just before the lake.
