  • Mainly the 3 interesting place in the park is the Changura laguna, the Salar and Putre village. We rented a car to visit the park and in 2 days we did all these places plus hot springs near the Salar.  more »
  • We went on a Tour that we happened to find a hotel x $30,000 per person, includes lunch. The tour departs in Valley of lluta and several default arrests all very beautiful places. You finally get to the Park definitely beautiful. Lake Chungará with Parinacota volcano in the background. On the way we saw llamas, Vicuna, alpaca, Condors and many beautiful birds. We chewing coca leaves and take you coca at one of the stops and did not have problems with the puna. We returned at 7 pm at the hotel. Worth the penalty is a must. November temperature pleasant. Plenty of sunshine

  • What an amazing set of national parks. A must see for anyone who has time to visit. Its cold and dusty but the views are incredible and ever changing. We took the chance to drive ourselves and it was so worth the extra effort.
  • Such a beautiful place. In Lauca National Park people can find rich flora and fauna as well as outstanding landscapes. You can get there by car or all-day tours
  • I was at the Bolivian Chilean border. At the summit of volcano Acotango. The views of Lauca National Park, Chile, and Sajama National Park, Bolivia, are truly magnificent! Acotango is a trekking peak that anyone with regular fitness can do. At 6056 m of altitude it is one of the easiest high altitude climbs in Bolivia. A mining road gets up to 5600 m and the easy and wide ridge is not exposed nor steep.
  • The park is great but the real name i think willbe PARCO DE LOS CAMIONES!!!..i dont know where can happen that in a NP there is a mine with a thousand ..A THOUSAND Truck working up and down from pitre to surire....INCREDIBLE !!..this is chile..
