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. Add Lago Chungara to your Putre travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Putre tour planner.
