MAIN ATTRACTIVES
EYES OF THE VOLCANO SALT

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 the Western 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

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

High mountains surround the lake. Among them are  The dead,  Incahuasi,  False Sulfur,  White sorrow,  White canyons,  The hermit,  Vicunas  and the already mentioned Eyes of the Salt, 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  Chili.

 

It has two main summits,  Tres Cruces Sur  at 6,748 meters (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.

VOLCANO COPY

Copiapó, also known as  Sulfur, is a  stratovolcano  located in the  Atacama Region  of  Chili. 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.
