Information of Volcano Licancabur

The Licancabur Volcano is located in the border with Bolivia and can be seen in the distance from San Pedro de Atacama.

On the Bolivian side, this volcano is part of the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve. There it rubs shoulders with other important tourist attractions of the neighboring country, the Laguna Verde and a large reserve of Andean Flamingos.

At the top of the volcano, precisely in its crater, is the fifth highest lake in the world. This puddle, which measures 90 x 70 meters and has between 5 and 6 meters deep, also stands out because despite the existence of temperatures of -30 degrees Celsius during the night.
