Laguna Tebinquinche, San Pedro de Atacama
(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Discover how captivating the driest place on Earth can be when you add some water to it at Laguna Tebinquinche. Unlike the other lagoons of the Atacama Desert--generally small pools of water--this is actually a proper saltwater lake, nestled under the towering peaks of the Andes. The mirrorlike surface reflects the surrounding scenery, making this spot famous for some of Chile's most beautiful sunsets. In the summer the lake tends to dry, leaving behind a thick layer of salt that you can easily walk on. Drive to the lake on your own, or join one of the many organized tours of the salt flats that regularly leave from San Pedro de Atacama.

  • This place impresses wet extension of salts in surface, which were restricted to the passage of tourists on its surface, but can be viewed from the edges

  • The most cute, as well as seeing many go with its tourists and everyone with cocktails, and food looking at the sunset, is the contrast of colors of the landscape changes dramatically as they spend the minutes, fantastic!
