Being at this altitude each step and each breathe was heightened in enjoyment and mindfulness. The beauty was astounding as were the shades of color and shadows as each part of the landscape transformed before our very eyes.

We went on our own in a rental car (a small Toyota). We felt we did not need 4x4. We used the Chiletur "Norte" guide sold at larger Copec gas stations as our guide (in Spanish, purchased in Santiago). The lagoons are beautiful and otherworldly. We saw vicuñas and zorros on the way to the park. We saved this trip... More

Wen on tour with Ruja Verde to this location, as part of a three day adventure. Fantastic scenery, great flocks of flamingos and well worth the visit. Just make sure you have take your altitude tablets.

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.

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
