    Before you get the tour guide warned us: "In less than a block will say to me that of rare they are here". Justaamente, in less than half a block warned that there was no inhabitants in Isluga. No one. Thus it confirmed it then, just lived a caregiver since residents arrive on holiday and for traditional parties a month. in any case there, right in front of this place that you show we went down and walk awhile.

    We have a tour via Enquelga and Mauque as well as the small geysers made by Puchultsia and via route No. 15 back to Colchane. Pretty little church and (almost) deserted villages. Approx. 33 km before Colchane located right above the route 15 pretty erosion formations with small towers, caves, etc. There are links a Bay. The walk worthwhile. The Volcán Isluga is a great tour for mountain lovers. There is a marked path to the crater, about 1200 Höhenmter! Be careful on the crater rim because of toxic sulphur fumes.

    We went with a Show Travel tour (based in Iquique) and spent 12 hours in the park between driving and visits. It was amazing; geysers, thermal baths, mountains, volcanoes, pueblos and so much wildlife...  more »
