Description

On this expedition we will visit: the town of Toconao (Kunza: Lost Corner) enchants for its simplicity, calm of its people, special climate, beautiful architecture and craftsmanship; We will visit the marginal area of the Salar de Atacama known as Laguna Chaxa located in the Soncor Sector, Los Flamencos National Reserve. Later we headed towards the South East (Andes Mountains) to settle in a Altiplano town called Socaire, we visited its Church and learned about its agriculture. Once settled in the Andes mountain range we headed approx. at 4,200.- m.a.s.l. to find Lagunas Miscanti and Meñiques belonging to the Los Flamencos National Reserve, it is characterized by volcanoes and mountainous reliefs such as Cerro Miscanti and Volcano Meñiques. Species such as the Horned Tagua, Parinas Chicas, Caití, Baird's Sandpiper, Puna Plover, Juarjual Duck and the Guallata abound there. The flora is mainly composed of the Llareta and the Paja Brava. Both lagoons are born thanks to groundwater from melting ice. Continuing along the foothills of the Southern Andes, we head to the Salar de Talar, known touristically as Piedras Rojas, a place where the rocks are subjected to natural oxidation and weathering, which causes these colors to be lost in the intensity of the Andes.
