Photographer's Note

The Baltinache Lagoons are a very pleasant walk in the Atacama Desert. It is necessary to walk 45 kilometers of dirt road to reach them. Unlike other Atacama lagoons, here you will find very few tourists.

The lagoons have very high loads of salt in their composition, so when entering them you can float, however much you want you will not be able to sink.

There are 7 lagoons, in two of them it is allowed to bathe. The colorations are different, some darker and some translucent blue.
