“Just within the Bolivian border, an extraordinary vista at Pampa Quayaques at an altitude of 4,600 metres stretches out below the brow of a shallow hill. Just beyond is Zapaleri Volcano, the meeting point of Chile, Bolivia and Argentina.The subtle browns, greys and muted blacks of the rocky landscape are broken by the brilliant turquoise of the salt lagoon in the foreground. In this freezing region the salt saturation of the lake is so dense that it never freezes.”
