Pedernales salt flat and Doña Ines, Atacama desert, Chile

Photo: Salar de Pedernales (around 3350 meters high) - panoramic view from the west bank. In the background you can see Doña Inés Hill (height 5075 meters) in about 30 kilometers distance. (CaXSi639; W. Griem 2010)

Location: The Pedernales salt lake is located east of El Salvador or Diego de Alamagro.
Next town: El Salvador (60 km), Diego de Almagro (103 km)
Petrol: El Salvador (60 km), Diego de Almagro (103 km)
The place: One of the most charming landscapes, the almost dimensionless salt lake and the volcanoes on the other bank. Road: The main road is salted and in good condition, the shore road around the Salar is gravelled, and quite narrow - besides, almost without traffic, if you want to drive further than to the Boraxmine you should drive with 2 vehicles. In any case 4X4 (SUV, Jeep or Pickup).
UTM: E475.089 / N70.89.264 - Height: 3405 m. (picture).
