Nestled in the middle of the Domeyko and Claudio Gay mountain ranges, at 3,346 meters above sea level and about 237 km from the city of Copiapó. It corresponds to a vast expanse of salt flats located in a depression between mountains, forming lagoons with turquoise blue waters inside. In the sector inhabits fauna such as the Andean, Chilean and James flamingos and Juarjual ducks. It is characterized by being surrounded by hills where marine fossil remains have been found, among which are Doña Inés Volcano, Los Gemelos and Blanco. You can do activities such as excursion, photography, observation of flora and fauna and adventure tourism.

MARICUNGA SALT LAKE

The salt flat of Maricunga, which is a little over 15 km long, is the southernmost salt lake on the Chilean side. In good weather, the views of the Volcano Copiapó and the Tres Cruces chain are magnificent.

 

The seemingly infinite plain of the Salar de Maricunga is located at 3750 meters above sea level. The special thing about this flat is the lack of natural effluent. However, the high rate of evaporation does not turn this enclosed basin into a huge lake. But the salts remain in this process. Slowly a salt lake with huge sequences of saltworks formed in the underground.

The Maricunga salt flat has a length of 29.6 km (northern shore to the Santa Rosa Lake) and the active area is only 15.3 km long. The maximum width of the salt lake is 9.8 km.
