The newly protected waters around the Desventuradas Islands contain many marine species found nowhere else on Earth.
The Andean foothills and high plateau landscapes merge in a place of great cultural and historical interest with amazing natural beauty.
One of its main attractions is the wonderful Chungará Lake, one of the highest in the world found at the foot of the Payachata twin volcanoes. If you love history, then you must visit its locations of archaeological and historical interest.
Visit the town and church of Parinacota, the village of Chucuyo and the settlements of Chungará, Ajata and Cruzane and travel back to the pre-Columbian past of the Aymara people.
Camp at the foot of volcanoes and caves, right in front of the reflection of beautiful lagoons or go fishing in the park´s rivers with an amazing view that will make you forget it´s one of Chile’s most populated regions.
