Una experiencia alucinante. Ruta complicada, con muchas curvas y pendientes. Vistas expectaculares por toda la ruta.

Amazing Place. The landscapes were unbelievable and there was so much wildlife to see. Highly recommend.
What an amazing place. It's like nowhere else! The high altitude lake and bird life are very special. Views of snow topped volcanoes, caves to climb up to, the boardwalk across the wetlands, llamas, alpacas and vicuñas, craggy mountains and thermal springs to soak in, all make this a unique part of the world. And a visit to the tiny Andean village of Parinacota is an absolute must with its adobe church from the 17th century and the tiny school with about 4 students.
