The two lakes in between the mountains are stunning, but since they are located at an altitude of more than 4000 m, make sure you take it slow with the ascend...

It's a must do in Atacama! One of the most beautiful landscapes I've ever seen! Bring a good camera, don't rely on your phone, the landscape deserves a good camera!

We arrived here at the end of a long day touring but we were still blown away by the sheer beauty of this place. Outstanding. Totally unspoilt. The snow capped volcanoes seem so close and the lakes are a deep blue. We saw a large herd of vicuña with many young whilst here which was a treat.

Mid January 2017 was rainy in the Atacama area. Because of this there was snow in the higher country and the road was closed due to slippery conditions.

What was absolutely gorgeous was the vivid contrast between the yellow grass and the blue water and sky. Well worth the long drive to get there.

Wonderful 2 lagoons in the middle of the desert. A completely different world. Would definitely recommend to take it - usually part of Pedro Rojas tour! Brong your camera!

my favourite place in the Desert of Atacama. For me it was the higlight. See the Animals passing the Lagunas and its not really crowded by tourists as its a bit far from San Pedro. For me a must see.

Don't think I can describe the beauty in words. Very peaceful. One could sit there for hours just admiring nature. We were thankful we had this on our must see

the place is stunnind and beautiful, the only minus is that the paths are kind of far from the edge of the lagoon, it would be very nice to be nearby
