South hot springs salt flats

"One of the most beautiful places in the Atacama Desert."

The lagoon Salar de Aguas Calientes Sur, is one of the most wonderful lagoons that can be found on the planet, inserted in the Andean mountain range, steep over 4200 meters above sea level. Arriving at the lagoon you can already see a natural postcard that silences. The journey along a path brings us to the edge of the viewpoint, the color of its waters is impressive, which is confused in its transparency with shades of wonderful colors between the sky, water and mountain. The colors, the place, the solitude, the nature, will remain engraved as one of your best travel experiences.
