In this expedition, we will visit Toconao (Kunza “Lost Corner”) which enchants for its simplicity, calm of its people, special climate, beautiful architecture and craftsmanship. We will visit the marginal zone of the Atacama Saltflat known as Laguna Chaxa located in Sector Soncor -Flamenco National Reserve-. Later we take direction towards the South East (Mountain range of the Andes) to settle ourselves in the Altiplanic Town of Socaire. We visit the Church and we know of its agriculture. Once installed in the cordon of the Andes, we drive approx. at 4200 m.a.s.l to find Lagunas Miscanti and Meñiques. These lagoons belong to the National Reserve Los Flamencos and is characterized by volcanoes and mountainous reliefs such as the Miscanti hill and the Meñiques volcano. In addition to the flamingos, there are many species such as Tagua Cornuda, Parinas Chicas, Caití, Playero de Baird, Chorlo de la Puna, Pato Juarjual and la Guallata. The flora is mainly composed by the Llareta and the Brave Straw.
Both lagoons are born thanks to the groundwater coming from the thaws.
Continuing along the foothills of the South Andes, we head to the Salar de Talar, known as Piedras Rojas, where the rocks are subjected to a natural oxidation and weathering, which causes these colors to be lost in the intensity of the Andes.
