Absolutely amazing. Beautiful, stunning. Great landscape. Wear warm clothes as the lagoons are ina very high altitude and the weather is much cooler than in San Pedro.

2 beauty lagoons near volcanos a bit far from San Pedro (1:30h from there). If you go to or have been to Uyumi Salt Flats excursion, you will find it a bit repetitive.

This was my favourite trip! Driving past snow capped mountains to the lakes. The lakes are salty. The scenery spectacular. I got some amazing photos of reflection s in the lakes. Acclimatise to the high altitude in San Pedro for two days before attempting this trip! Suitable footwear, warm layers, wind proof jacket and sun screen required.

We took a tour with Cosmo Andino which took in these Chaza, Miscanti and Miniques but also "Talar" or "Piedras Rojas" (red rocks) which is currently not a national park. Though the stunning white salt and blue waters of these lagoons were as others have said amazing, Talar was blew them out of the water, the incredible colours of the... More

Absolutely amazing. Clean. Well kept. The facilities are clean and amazing. Student price is a great deal at 1500. Spent a lot on a taxi out there but it was my favorite thing to do almost on the whole trip. Avoid the rocks on the right side. Go straight to the left when you are approaching the water. Big mistake... More

A short ride out of San Pedro into the mountains give you a beautiful view of the lagoons. The entry fee to this location was $2,000 clp or $1,500 for senior citizen which seems to be anyone over 40. Walking up and down from the lagoon is relatively easy as the incline is about 20%. You cannot enter the water... More

No doubt is the best excursion in Atacama. It's a long drive passing through Socaire, a small village in kind of oasis. Bring you camera and a big memory card because we can't decide what to shoot first and when stop shooting, because all the region is so photogenic. The wind can be very intense in the open parts, so... More

did the atacama desert tour and at the end we visited this beautiful place. This Lagoons are really beautiful but if you come from the Uyuni through the Uyuni Desert, you already have seen pretty similar lagoons.
