Tierra Atacama / Atacama Desert Tours

High-Plains Lagoons and Piedras Rojas

On this tour we will visit 3 beautiful lagoons. We will head south and arrive first at the Miscanti Lagoon, located 1 hour and 30 minutes from the hotel and 4,100 meters above sea level. We will take an approximately 15-minute walk around a path along the beautiful lagoon and surrounded by different animals. Then we will continue to Meñiques, where there is only one lookout point from which to appreciate the lagoon. Once Miscanti and Miñiques have been enjoyed, we will continue towards Piedras Rojas. This lagoon has a new, flat path; it is in very good condition and takes about 45 minutes to walk, because activity at this altitude is demanding. After the hike, we will have a delicious lunch and then return to the hotel.
