Atacama & Uyuni
Desert & Altiplano, Chile - Bolivia
TRAYECTO ATACAMA – RAMADITAS
- 2,1 km / 1.3 mi
The trip from Atacama to the Ramaditas Mountain Home will cross the Altiplano through an active Andes Mountain Range. We leave the lodge and cross towards Bolivia, stopping first at the White Lagoon. We walk along the south border of the lagoon to enjoy the altitude landscape and bird watching.
We then go to the Green Lagoon, from where we walk to the Apachetas viewpoint, where we get a view of the Licancabur and Sairecabur volcanoes. We continue towards the Sol de Mañana Geysers, where the smell of sulfur alerts us of mineral-rich underground currents.
We walk to the lagoons to see amazing flocks of flamingos and other birds. We have lunch enjoying this landscape, the Altiplano, and the Red Lagoon, to then continue with our trip.
It is a rare thing to experience silence on a planet where it seems to have become extinct.
