Full description
The imposing Miscanti and Miñiques volcanoes rise over two blue lagoons. Located in the Andes, the lagoons are one of the seven sectors of the Flamingos National Reserve. The lagoons' deep blue waters and white shores welcome a large variety of birds, making this a great spot for birdwatching. The mix of desert, mountains, and ice, make this an ideal site for taking pictures. Take in the magical contrast of the scenery with the snow-capped hills that surround them. Also see the Salar de Talar, also known as Piedras Rojas, a saline body with a surface of 46 square kilometers, which is part of a chain of volcanoes, salt lakes, and crystalline waters. You will be amazed by the indescribable and inspiring scenery that mixes volcanoes, lakes, sky, varied flora, and fauna composed of flamingos, vizcacha, vicuña, and foxes.
