Fodor's Expert Review Parque Nacional Lauca

Parque Nacional Lauca Fodor's Choice

On a plateau more than 4,000 meters (13,120 feet) above sea level, the magnificent Parque Nacional Lauca shelters flora and fauna found in few other places in the world, and rivals even Torres del Paine for its beauty. Cacti, grasses, and a brilliant emerald-green moss called llareta dot the landscape. Playful vizcacha—rabbitlike rodents with long tails—laze in the sun, and llamas, graceful vicuñas, and alpacas make their home here as well. About 10 km (6 miles) into the park is a CONAF station with informative brochures.
