Campo de Piedra Pomez, Antofagasta de la Sierra

(130+ reviews on the web)
Outdoor Activity
Explore the desolate sea of porous white rocks at Campo de Piedra Pomez, a distinctive volcanic landscape located in deserted Catamarca. Crystallization of volcanic ash and debris shortly after an explosion caused the terrain's striking pumice effect. Dry winds then carved the stone into the harsh, jagged landscape. You won't find any kiosks in this very isolated area, so bring plenty of food and water if you plan to stay for a while.

  • Protected Natural area, comprises approximately 75,000 hectares. It has a minimum height of 3,050 meters above sea level and reaches the 4,850 meters above sea level on the hills located to the West of the white volcano. The pumice stone field entry is free of charge. The place is stunning, the effect of walking on the pumice stone turned out to us like it did when hiking on a glacier in Patagonia. (E) we visited it on road from the town of El Peñón Antofagasta de la Sierra. The road from route to the entry to the field should be done in 4 x 4 vehicle or similar. Tours can be hired from the village of Bethlehem, El Peñón and Antofagasta de la Sierra. In addition to the field if same impacts the environment and the difference of colors offered. Absolutely recommended!

  • I went in January 2016. We arrived by car at El Peñón, we stayed at the Inn of adobe, very pretty, has only 8 rooms and electricity 3 hours a day (from 19 to 22). The next day we are looking for someone that will take us to the field of pumice in van. This person is a nurse of the place that made us also know the volcano Carachi Pampa and a few pariñas (lagoons with flamingos). He would return in a few years.

  • Is worth it penalty do them Km that there are that do, and go the desert of the puna Catamarca for get to this place, a sea of stone volcanic of 8 Km average of width by 25 Km of long, completely different to the rest of it quie it surrounds. This without detracting at all the rest of the landscape volcanic and its infinite number of colors. One can take thousands of photos, but cannot transfer that one lives and takes in the soul, unforgettable!.
