Laguna de los Pozuelos
Flamingos reign in this magnificent water mirror, located 3,600 m.a.s.l. Over 100,000 specimens of the 3 species living in Argentina can be viewed: the Chilean flamingo, the Andean flamingo and James’s flamingo.
Some ‘unique species’ from Puna can also be found, such as the Andean avocet, the Andean goose, the Puna teal, the Andean gull, the Puna plover and the giant coot, apart from migratory birds arriving in the summer, as the Wilson’s phalarope and the Hudsonian godwit.
A walk around the southern part of the lagoon, near the mouth of Cincel River, is recommended. The size of the lagoon changes according to the river flow and the summer rainfall. In August and September, the lagoon tends to be smaller and more kilometres must be travelled to reach the shore.
