Campo de Piedra Pomez, Antofagasta de la Sierra

4.9
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Antofagasta de la Sierra
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.

  • Beautiful place. It is to go only with 4 x 4. And with two trucks, because of the remoteness of the route.

  • Beautiful place, the effort and time to get can vary but usually is enough. It should be prepared for the Sun, the wind, the cold and carry water and food for the road.
