It seems so, apparently the color is produced by a salt-tolerant bacteria. The salt lake itself appears to be natural as well according to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuncheng_Salt_Lake

Edit: maybe the geometrical patterns are made by humans harvesting salt, maybe this has resulted in different salinity in each section, which in turn has made the bacteria produce different colors?
