Reserva Nacional Salinas y Aguada Blanca
Reserva Nacional Salinas y Aguada Blanca information
The paved road from Arequipa climbs northeast past El Misti and Chachani to this national reserve , which covers 367,000 hectares at an average elevation of 4300m. Here, vicuñas are often sighted. Later in the trip, domesticated alpacas and llamas are frequently seen, so it is possible to see three of the four members of the South American camelid family in one day. Seeing the fourth member, the guanaco, is very hard, as they have almost disappeared from this area.
