Flamingos on Lake Chungara in Northern Chile's Altiplano

During our 4-day excursion through northern Chile’s altiplano, we visited salt flats, small villages and lakes surrounded by mountains. Lake Chungara lies high on the altiplano near volcanoes Parinacota and Pomerape. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy day, but the pink flamingos were still around. These flamingos aren’t comfortable around people and any time we got near them, they quickly flew away. Bring a telephoto lens if you want to get up close.
