Arica and the Atacama desert,

A travel blog entry by elephanto12345 on Feb 20, 2015

... 160;Azapa Valley and saw the most amazing archaeological museum which displayed some 5000BC mummies- much older than the Egyptian Mummies. They were amazing to see and though a bit macabre I found these blackened figures incredible. These people could not read,write or make any pottery or use metal and yet they knew that manganize oxide could preserve their bodies for the next world. All on board once more and this time we saw the most jaw dropping geo glyphs - these are drawings on ...

... morning was too gray for any kind of decent views, though. Chileans call Arica "the city of eternal spring," but springtime often entails overcast mornings.

... a trip out along Ruta 11 to Parque Nacional Lauca. We saw hillside geoglyphs, candelabra cacti and visited the pleasant Aymara villages of Putre and Parinacota with their whitewashed adobe buildings, stone streets and pretty churches. The highlight of the day was the awesome view across Lago Chungara (4,517m) and its shimmering reflections of the snow-capped Volcan Parinacota (6,350m).

Onward bus to Iquique, 5 hours.
