Aguas Calientes revisited by gastonnerie Aguas Calientes revisited by gastonnerie
Salar (Salt lake) de Aguas Calientes (Altitude approx. 3950m)
The white layer on the slopes is salt , not snow....

Northern Chile

Captured at Altitude about 4000m (from small pass between salar de Capur and Salar de Aguas Calientes)


In fact, the visible part of the salar is only a portion of a bigger one called Salar de Talar
Mountain in the background (3 summits) is Cerros de Incahuasi (5704m)
Mountain on the right (grey and white - white is salt ! ) is Cerro Medano (4503m)
