  • Beautiful landscapes... decent place to admire nature at its best... beautiful combination of colors

  • Wonderful landscape formed by movements of the Cordillera and the strength of the winds. A ride of a lifetime in San Pedro.

  • From San Pedro, after crossing spectacular areas, such as hierba buena, we found ourselves at 4,300 m altitude and below us the lagoon of Piedras Rojas. Gorgeous. The "water" of the lagoon in stark contrast with the dark red stones of the Valley that contains it, capped by snow-capped mountains, threatening to cause the thunderstorm that was going. Rather cool and not too many people.
