Trip Planner: South America / Chile / Antofagasta Region / San Pedro de Atacama / Lagunas Miscanti y Miniques
Soak in the stunning scenery of Lagunas Miscanti y Miniques, two natural jewels of northern Chile. The two salt-water lakes, the Miscanti and the Miniques, lie at an altitude of over 4,000 m (13,123 ft) on the Antiplano Plateau, in the shadows of the mighty Miniques volcano and the towering Cerro Miscanti Mountain. Split from a single body of water by volcanic lava flow, the lakes feature a blue surface that perfectly reflects the surrounding mountains. The most popular way to reach the lakes is on an organized tour, since an individual journey can be tricky due to high altitude and poor conditions of the local roads. You can plan San Pedro de Atacama trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Beautiful landscape. Local Rangers need to be more kind according to the touristic place that it is.
My favorite place in the region of Atacama. Beautiful lagunas with a special sense of tranquility. The route inside the park is designed well. Only the last part of the road before entering the park (about 7km), the condition of the road is not easy to drive, had to go very slowly.
