Campo de Piedra Pomez, Antofagasta de la Sierra
(5/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • All photos are real, a place of success for getting tired of taking pictures. I made an excursion with an agency that hires in Bethlehem (also there are lenders in Antofagasta and the rock) to gain access to the zone is one hour and half above mark on the road swerving from the path. It is essential that it is 4 x 4 because but go wrong. Bring water and eye with the heat. If only you have chances of losing you or meet you halfway.

  • This fascinating tour is located 63 km of Antofagasta and 10 km away from the town of El Peñón, presents great extent large fields of pumice, resembling a sea of white rock with pink ridges. Here, the wind that descends from the Andes has carved in the rocks the most different forms creating corridors or "avenues", and all kinds of fascinating sculptures. Witness the intense volcanic activity in the region since time immemorial, the pumice stone field is a landscape unique, like from another planet. It is an attractive irresistible to anyone who enters the territory of the Puna.

  • A dream place, worth the experience of reaching there despite the difficult roads. Shocking would be the term more appropriate to describe it.
