8 Chilean landscapes that appear from one other planet

It is a pleasure to write and put together lists about landscapes that seem from another planet. We already did it with Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, the United States, and even Afghanistan. Now it is the turn of Chili: red colored lakes, salt flats at incredible heights where pink flamingos enjoy a tailor-made paradise, glaciers that seem to have been sculpted and painted by some abstract artist, imposing rock towers that coexist among clouds. A gallery of dazzling images that we have rarely selected in 101 Incredible Places:

On the shores of General Carrera Lake, in Chili, the erosion of water for thousands of years has modeled a rock formation that can be explored inside. It is a series of islets and caverns with curious shapes, accessible by small boat from the town of Puerto Río Tranquilo. So curious, as to equate them to small chapels and even to a marble cathedral.

At three thousand five hundred meters high in the north of Chili, the landscape goes into an unreal atmosphere. In isolated lands, barely known corners that are not even on a map still remain. The red lagoon It has a liquid of such an intense color that it looks like ink or blood. Its waters remain eternally hot and therefore little is known about its depth.

The Glacier Grayin the National Park Torres del Painein Chili, seems to combine its shades and tones with the sky, the clouds, the sunset and the ice crystals, to capture a true work of art in the landscape. The result is a dreamlike landscape, a symphony of color, in light blue and turquoise, a visual spectacle that changes at every moment:

It is an area that is located at 2,500 meters above sea level, but it looks like a landscape from another planet, or at least a landscape from the Moon. Thousands of years of erosion in the desert left capricious formations, but above all, due to the tones, the salt formations, and the art of the wind and the little rain, the region offers almost unreal postcards. The Valley of the moon is located in the Antofagasta Regionjust 13 kilometers from the small town of San Pedro de Atacama. The area is part of the National Reserve of the Flamingosa desert area that is divided into 7 regions according to its altitude and variations in the ecosystem.

7. The Atacama Salt Flat

The largest salt flat in Chile is a depression where the San Pedro de Atacama river dies, a landscape that appears to be unfit for life, and yet the natural beauty manages to complement itself with a typical highland fauna, which returns to the place even stranger. The Atacama salt flat is located in the Antofagasta Region.
