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.

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.
