Sol de Mañana

Sol de Mañana (Morning Sun) is a geothermal field in Sur Lípez Province in the Potosi Department of south-western Bolivia. It extends over 10 km², between 4800m and 5000m height above sea level. It is the highest geyser field in the world. It is characterized by intense volcanic activity and fumarole and gets its name because it is early morning, at sunrise, when the temperature difference between air and steam in addition to the lighting of the sun, magnify its glory.
