Pin It

'With a surface area of 137,883 hectares (303,342 acres), this Global Biosphere Reserve covers the pre-Andean mountain chain and the high plateau of the northeastern end of the region of Tarapaca. It has a dry climate with well-defined day and night thermal variations.

This park is well-known for being home to a great wealth of flora and fauna, its highly interesting culture and history, and sites of uncultivated beauty. More than 130 different bird species live in this park, in addition to the distinctive vicuñas, vizcachas, and condors. A major attraction of the park is the astonishing Chungara Lake, one of the most elevated of the world, located at the foot of the Payachata twin volcanoes.
