Morning Sun Geysers (Sol de Mañana Géisers) at 4,970m. (16,305.77 ft.), the Sajama National Park, Bolivian Highlands (Altiplanos Bolivianos), Oruro, Bolivia.

Sol de Mañana (Morning Sun) is a geothermal area in Sur Lípez Province in the Potosi Department of south-western Bolivia. It extends over 10 km2, between 4800m and 5000m in altitude.

This area is characterized by intense volcanic activity and the sulphur springs field is full of mud lakes and steam pools with boiling mud. Industrial logging was attempted at the end of the 1980s, but is uneconomic. There are still several wells, one of which emits pressurized steam, visible in the morning up to 50 meters high. The major mud lakes are located at 4850m. The field is seismically active.
