One of the highest lakes in the world, Lago Chungara is surrounded with untamed nature. Make the long, rough drive through surrounding mountains to reach this attraction, where animals like alpacas, foxes, pumas, and Chilean flamingo roam. Take stunning photos of volcanoes reflected in the lake's surface, but take caution when tackling the challenging hiking trails. Any visitors with respiratory issues may want to think twice before visiting due to high altitude. Lodging choices are limited, so book ahead and take plenty of snacks, water, and sunscreen.

It was excellent, Don Freddy, our driver and guide, is in the area, known throughout the industry and did us spend a day entertaining with his humor, singing and telling anecdotal data and customs of the place. We made several stops between them for breakfast and lunch (which is included) and also a ceremony aymara which put us typical clothing, was too entertaining (the other tours had face with envy). The trip gave us recommendations to not apunarnos what ok turned out to enjoy the beauty of the landscape. The trip is a bit tiring but Chungará Lake and the beautiful way, worth it. Recommended!

You can feel the presence of God in all and each one of the places. I recommend also visit Socoroma and if you can visit Bethlehem, lupus, Saxamar, and Ticnamar, are places to sit and contemplate. Excellent place for lovers of nature and the starry heavens...
