What can be said other than gorgeous. This place is lovely, well looked after and beautiful. I don't think you can go in to these lagoons but they are beautiful to look and and offer great opportunities for some simply beautiful pictures.

Three lagoons, all completely different make up this amazing area of the Atacama desert. The first Lake Chaxa also has flamingos The other two are at altitude and some of our group suffered with breathlessness and blurry vision, so be careful

The drive up is amazing. An altitude of over 4000 meters but doesn't feel like it. Go when there are few people to enjoy the calm.

As soon as you climb up some mountain, the views are astonishing. If you want to get far from the crowd and enjoy nature at its best, just go there.
