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.

  • We hired a tour of three days he started Bethlehem, we did two nights in Antofagasta and back pass by the field of pumice stone. Beautiful place, of access very complicated (4 by 4 mandatory). Our travel remained and was long, but is to go early, and be you taking Matt a few hours!

  • Comes in 4 x 4 If or if. You should go with the provision of water, beware of strong sun and be careful not to lose it. The scenery is simply spectacular to points where you look at it.
