We will pick you up at your hotel in the morning to start this trip outside the city. The tour to the Red Rocks & Altiplanic Lagoons will take us through important touristic places inside the Atacama Desert. To reach the Red Rocks Lagoon, also known as Aguas Calientes Salt Flat, we will have to go up in our vehicle to 3800 meters of altitude and walk for 1 hour and 15 minutes, to see the red-colored rocks, besides some lagoons and salt flats around. The same way, we will make a stop in the Chaxa Lagoon, place where you will be able to see flamingos. Then, we will go to the area of Altiplanic Lagoons Miscanti and Miñiques, where our guide will give us some information about the flora and fauna of the place.
