Without a doubt the most captivating scenery I have ever beheld. Truly breathtaking.

This location is a hidden gem in the desert of the Atacama in Chile. If you are in this region, skipping this tour will be the biggest mistake you make. Be warned however, that the altitude reaches 4500 m and it is quite cold, so bundle up! The drive to get to piedras rojas is very beautiful as well so do not sleep on your way there! This tour is best done in conjunction with the tour of Lagunas Altiplanacas(Also breathtaking), so be sure to find a tour company that will take you to both!
