Geocache Description:

In the North of Chile (Lauca National Park), on the way from Arica to La Paz, Altitude above 4500 m.

This Lauca National Park is well-known for being home to a great wealth of flora and fauna, its highly interesting culture and history, and sites of uncultivated beauty. More than 130 different bird species live in this park, in addition to the distinctive vicuñas, vizcachas, and condors.

A major attraction of the park is the astonishing Chungara Lake, one of the most elevated of the world, located at the foot of the snowcapped 6330-metre-high volcan Parinacota.

The cache is hidden 4580 m over sea level near the Conaf station at the Lake Chungara. It´s highly recommended to stay overnight in Putre at 3500 m for altitude acclimatisation.

Take your time to discover the park, watch the animals and enjoy the spectacular view! The lake changes the colors at different times of the day - please add a photo to your log!
