MAIN ATTRACTIVES
OJOS DEL SALADO VOLCANO

Nevado Ojos del Salado is a massive stratovolcano in the Andes on the Argentina–Chile border and the highest active volcano in the world at 6,893 m (22,615 ft). It is also the second highest mountain in theWestern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere and the highest in Chile. It is located about 600 km (370 mi) north of Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere at 6,961 m (22,838 ft).

The ascent of Ojos del Salado is mostly a hike except for the final section to the summit which is a difficult scramble that may require ropes. The first ascent was made in 1937 by Jan Alfred Szczepański and Justyn Wojsznis, members of a Polish expedition in the Andes.

GREEN LAKE

Laguna Verde (Spanish for "green lake" or "green lagoon") is a salt lake in the Andes Mountains of Chile. It lies in the Atacama Region (third region), near San Francisco Pass. The volcano Ojos del Salado marks the south border of its basin.

High mountains surround the lake. Among them are El Muerto, Incahuasi, Falso Azufre, Peña Blanca, Barrancas Blancas, El Ermitaño, Vicuñas and the already mentioned Ojos del Salado, the highest active volcano in the world.

NEVADO DE TRES CRUCES

Nevado de Tres Cruces is a massif of volcanic origin in the Andes Mountains on the border of Argentina and Chile.

 

It has two main summits, Tres Cruces Sur at 6,748 metres (22,139 ft) and Tres Cruces Centroat 6,629 m (21,749 ft) and a third more minor summit, Tres Cruces Norte 6,206 m (20,361 ft). Tres Cruces Sur is the sixth highest mountain in the Andes.

 

The area was first surveyed in 1883 by Francisco San Román and the Nevado Tres Cruces National Park was established in 1994.

The volcano has an extended history of activity, going back at least 1.5 million years. A number of lava domes surround the complex and a number of craters lie on its summits. The main volcano is ofrhyodacitic composition and has generated two major ignimbritic eruptions, one 1.5 million years ago and a second 67,000 years ago. The last eruption was 28,000 years ago, but the volcano may become active in the future.

SANTA ROSA LAGOON

Located just south of the Salar de Maricunga, the lagoon is known for its Andean flamingos, which reside on the lagoon year-round. Laguna Santa Rosa, along with Laguna del Negro Francisco, is a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention.

LAGOON OF NEGRO FRANCISCO

La Laguna stands out for its unique landscape. Enclosed of mountains between 5000 meters up to 6000 meters of height, with an enormous amount of animals like Guanacos, Vicuñas, Flamencos among others.


La Laguna is a result of the special morphological situation of the sector. It is a closed basin - no outlet to the ocean. The water that comes from the rivers Astaburuaga, El Desagüe etc. Can only reach the lagoon.

 

More to the north (Maricunga, Pedernales) are formed in this way the salares. But here the precipitation rate is very high, which means a sufficient amount of water so that the salt does not crystallize.

COPIAPO VOLCANO

Copiapó, also known as Azufre, is a stratovolcano located in the Atacama Region of Chile. The volcano separates the two portions in which Nevado Tres Cruces National Park is divided. In its vicinity lies Ojos del Salado. At its summit an Inca platform can be found.
