  • It should go Yes or if it is leeeejos 170 km App, but it is worth. Ideal do it the day of the Highland Lakes, low and back to the road, and if you continue to the end of the road you come across stones Rojas. Most road is paved, but you get to a point which is of Earth, but in perfect condition, so it is not complicated if you're in Van or car only to be careful in curves, but as all roads. While there is incredible, near the lagoon much wind, but nothing out of the ordinary. We did it on separate days to the Highland Lakes, but it was a mistake because they are 350 km total round and round and a little earlier out poster "laguna Miscanti" left, so you can perfectly be in 1 day, just that it is intense. Don't charge tickets, there are no Rangers or anyone who can guide you, but easily accessible.

  • Do with the Altiplano Lagoons, is very worthwhile. Amazing colors, very beautiful and impressive landscape.
