Laguna Lachua is a pristine clear lake that comes in a nearly perfect circular shape. The lake features a vast land that measures 14,500 hectares, which appears like a patch of land floating in the middle of turquoise pure waters. The lake of Lachua is situated below sea level, with a depth of 222 meters and an altitude of 173 meters. Researchers have discovered that the waters in the lagoon contain high levels of sulphur and calcium deposits.
