Exploration Path

We start walking through mud geysers, crossing green valleys with high Andean flora and fauna. After passing through different geological formations we reach the needle, its particular summit formed by eruptions and carved by the erosion of wind and water.

These colossal massifs not only hoard minerals, but also encompass cultural expressions of people past and present. Axes of mystery, Atacama’s mountains frame its territory, remaining vigilant of all whom explore it.
