Campo de Piedra Pomez, Antofagasta de la Sierra

5.0
#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.

    It is to get lost walking, watching and guessing shapes that has carved the seeing. It is a volcanic lava field which can be accessed only by 4 x 4 (the cartel's income thus underlines), seen from far away in the Villa de Antofagasta de la Sierra when one moves away from it and enter the path. Ranger iterates moto place and pay income to him, in return gives an informative brochure. It can not be take when visiting Antofagasta de la Sierra.

    You may not be knowing this unique place in our country. And recommendation: go with Guide (either own or rented 4 x 4) and turn the volcano Carachi Pampa. Stop to take a few mates and enjoy the view of the lagoon Carachi Pampa, a Red Lake and green, with flamingos throughout the year! Safety pin!

    We approach with a local guide, since otherwise it would be more difficult power reach. The road must have a suitable vehicle since cross different types of floor and the sandy areas tend to be dangerous.

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