Tololo Pampa, Atacama desert, Chile

Photo: The extensive Pampa Tololo or Llano de la Jaula in the vicinity of Punta de Díaz and the Los Colorados mine (Fe). Nearby there are two historical runways: Tololo Pampa and Algarrobal. The plain stands out for its quantity of cactus candelabra and large quantities of guanacos. In summer the sector sets very high temperatures, according to its geographical location. The altitude of the plain is about 300 meters above sea level.
