Desert & Altiplano, Chile
Cuenca del salar
Camino del agua
- 3,8 km / 2,4 mi
We will travel into the interior of the desert where nature and history blend. We will walk inside an incredible and gigantic canyon, an arm eroded by the water of the San Pedro River that flows within it. We will arrive at a sector with a great quantity of petroglyphs, as the place was a refuge for caravans. For most of the hike, we will be walking through water.
*It is recommended to bring two pairs of shoes.
Geometric and seemingly infinite, the Atacama salt flat abruptly interrupts the desert’s chromatic continuum.
