Laguna Jayu Khota is a group of 2 young maars (Jayu Khota and Nekhe Khota to the NE) in the Central Altiplano of Bolivia, north of Salar de Uyuni and east of Salar de Coipasa. It was originally believed that they were meteorite impact craters.

Background:

The eruptions forming the maars produced basaltic-trachyandesite pyroclastic deposits containing granitic xenoliths.
The maars lie along a transverse lineament; the alkali basaltic cone of Chiar Kkollu is located nearby where this lineament intersects the regional trend. (Source: Smithsonian / GVP)
