Mirador - Hiking Putre - Chile

One way to get yourself ready to climb and trek in Parque Nacional Lauca and the other reserves is to take a hike up to the mirador, or lookout point just northeast of Putre's town center. From atop you'll have tremendous vistas of the whitewashed village squatting on the plain below. Immediately behind Putre is Volcán Tarapacá. Yet other volcanoes stud the altiplano horizon.
