Thank you to geoavdentures for the absolutely remarkable tour! It is definitely a must see on the Chilean Andes! Nevado tres cruces and laguna verde was a perfect day out and absolutely mesmerising! If you're nearby, DO IT!

This place is one of the most stunning places I have sever seen. Stark, wild and freezing! Very high altitude as well (about 4500m) so be prepared! Definitely worth the effort to get there. Simply amazing.

One of the must visit place near Copiapo. The bluish green water of the Lake on so high altitude is so mystic!!
