Keep heading towards the Red Lagoon, which is full of pink flamingoes. You’ll be spending the night out here in the refuge, so you’ve got plenty of time to admire the birds and to explore the nearby Siloli Desert, which is full of unique rock formations.

You’ll hop out of the car and start hiking through the valley, past scenic lagoons. Eventually, you’ll reach Kasiri Lagoon, which is picture-perfect. It’s framed by a small glacier and the blue sky, and it’s well worth the trip to reach it. Then, you’ll head back to the car and continue on to the Yampaturi waterfalls and the lakes that surround them. Stunning! Finally, you’ll pitch a tent near the home of La Dona Angelica, a local sheep and llama farmer who’s excited to invite you in for tea.
