Campo de Piedra Pomez, Antofagasta de la Sierra

(5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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!.

  • Is a ride not to be missed if going to the Highlands Catamarca, the landscape formed by these stones carved by the wind is amazing. In our case we got in our own vehicle, but I think that if you got no appropriate vehicle and knowledge is preferable to hire an excursion or a guide... These services can be hired at El Peñón, Antofagasta de la Sierra or in Bethlehem among others. After pass the town of the rock towards the North are born a pair of traces to this wonder natural, pass by stones, sand, ash volcanic, etc each section is a discovery and a pleasure discover it.

  • A unique landscape. Kilometers and kilometers of volcanic rock eroded by the wind which forms an infinite number of ghostly figures, with the dunes and the mountains in the background. Only accessible by 4 x 4.
