Directions to Red Rocks
Very close to the Altiplanic Lagoons is this landscape that leaves no one indifferent. The erosion caused by the water, added to the oxidation of the iron that is present in the place, make the rocks acquire a tone and shape that is difficult to find in another part of the planet.
The best time to visit Piedras Rojas is after the rains, when the waters clean the stones and acquire greater intensity of color.
To get to Piedras Rojas you have to be very attentive, since the route is not signposted. The sector is 160km from San Pedro de Atacama. You should drive in the direction of the Sico Pass (border crossing with Argentina) until signs appear towards Aguas Calientes.
After passing Socaire, you must drive 60 km more until you reach a sign for Paso Sico 49km and El Laco 17km, and 800 meters beyond you will find the entrance on the right.
Due to its proximity to the Altiplanic Lagoons, you can hire a tour to Piedras Rojas that contemplates the visit to these two sectors. It also includes a stop by Laguna Chaxa and the towns of Socaire and Toconao. The entrance to Piedras Rojas has no cost.
