Altiplano – The Highlands
Chile’s natural beauty and environmental extremes starts at the snow-capped Andean volcanoes of the Altiplano – or Highlands – at an average altitude of 4.000 m/13.000 ft. above sea level in northern Chile. Here, sand-preserved mummies, pre-Incan artifacts, ghost-towns, clear lakes, extensive steppes and hidden hot springs abound. Today the Highlands are a fascinating travel destination home to the Lauca National Park, Chungará – the highest lake in the world, exotic flora and fauna and many other breathtaking natural attractions encompassed with rich local history and culture.
