A small lagoon in the Atacama Salt Flat with fascinating white borders of crystallized salt and intense turquoise water, the Cejar Lagoon is one of the most famous spots around San Pedro. Apart from often being able to observe Flamingos and Coots, it is possible to have a refreshing bath in the lagoon and experience the relaxing effect of floating in the by salt saturated water.
The Cejar Lagoon is administrated by the indigenous community of Solor.
Located in the northern periphery of the Atacama Salt Flat, the characteristics of the Tebinquinche Lagoon are similar to the ones of the Chaxa Lagoon, regarding both flora and fauna as well as the fluctuation of its waters which depend on the snow melting and the yearly rains.
Administrated by the indigenous community of Coyo, there have been important scientific investigations on the presence of extremophile communities in the lagoon: Due to the extreme conditions of the Atacama desert and its special ecosystems this is one of the few areas on the planet where stromatolites – also known as “living rocks” – have been found. These are structures formed by extremophile microorganisms that precipitate minerals and that recreate the oldest fossils of our planet.
Ojos del Salar
Close to the Tebenquinche Lagoon we visit the Ojos del Salar (“Eyes of the Salt Flat”) – two nearly perfectly round lagoons with less salty water and a misterious and unexplored deep bottom.
