Our rating: 7.60
Overall rating:
The Miscanti Lagoon is a very beautiful lake in the Atacama Desert, located at an altitude of about 4200 meters. Nearby there is a second lake, a smaller one - Laguna Miniques. They are called the Lagunas Altiplanicas.

Together with several snow-white volcanoes in the background, the lake forms a fabulous landscape, which is worth seeing.
