Laguna Verde (Green Lagoon) is a salt lake in the southwest of the altiplano of Bolivia, in the Potosí Department, Sur Lípez Province, on the Chilean border at the foot of the volcanoLicancabur. Visitors may find some flamingoes dancing in the salt. Its colour is caused by sediments, containing copper minerals. It is elevated some 4,300 m (14,000 ft) above sea level. The laguna verde is well known for its spectacular scenery and hot springs. A small corridor separates the lake from Laguna Blanca.
