  • All Antofagasta is fantastic in the eyes. It's like being on another planet literally. I've never seen similar landscapes. That Yes, they are many hours of pickup truck, is not very dynamic. Just stop, take pictures and continue to appreciate the majestic panorama of nature. For lovers of photography, ideal. Colors of mountains, volcanoes, rocks in gradient, fantastic. I repeat, many hours of walking and walking on vehicle. At THE end of the tour you will reach the town of antofagasta in the sierra. Small town, small, divine. It's like going to another world for a while.

  • The Cordillera de Los Andes in the province of Catamarca reaches a height of 6000 meters above sea level approximately and offers a landscape of volcanic that dazzle by its red of lava, sulphur yellow, green of copper and iron reds and violets. Colors not only manifested in the stone but also in water. Also the Puna - arid expanse of land with low vegetation and with a sky blue and wide - still does note his presence there. It is advisable to settle a few days in Bethlehem, Center of exchange between the surrounding towns, with some colonial imprint and very interesting festivities. When went in the month of July of 2008, I found with the party of them vegetables, that kept awake to the village during the night, dancing in the plaza main. From there you can visit London Pucara, the path of "The six thousand" (in allusion to the highest summits), the Inca Huasi, to the Salar del Hombre Muerto volcano and along the route of the walnut can be started. The area not is exploited from it tourist, therefore the excursions is charged according to the expenditure of fuel and are very expensive. Although this target is usually planned with own car, know that curious Traveller groups - bus - line transiting the area are particularly attractive. Under the long distances covered, their frequency can be non-daily and weekly. On their journey, they cross roads of cornice, laja mountains, sand dunes, valleys and lagoons. But it more striking is the vitality that these you give to those peoples. Many times your companions, will be whole families ranging from "Barranca Larga" to "The rock" for a baptism, for example. But at other times, they can share a seat with an encomienda which should get off at "Laguna Blanca". Arriving at Antofagasta not only has Inns but also domestic families hosting and I suggest it. The buildings are drywall and is heat fireplace. For one much lower price, the villagers offer rooms, food and even rental of motorcycles or other vehicles that traverse the area. And Antofagasta de la Sierra you have to enjoy it with the entire body! Hence I wish that before, passing Laguna Blanca approximately, his eyes sunset, trample them height pinch them lungs and his ears the inevitable silence tinnitus stun them. Because then most likely and possible explanations, the Zonda wind, so magic as it is, start the roof of the bus and pull them up you all heaven and all the stars together. But don't panic, because far from hurting, they exhalarán the liberating sigh which happily raise them of its smallness and finitude in the vastness that contains them. Then, wander through the mountain. Experience all those feelings that will stay forever on the skin. It is not what lead there, but the landscape that gets them inside and as much as they need to leave, now they won't leave. Moreover, when they are in their routines, and despite how much they enslaved them, are always going to be returning.
