In my last day in Argentina, I embarked on one of the most scenic journeys a traveler can ever have in South America – the bus trip from Purmamarca to Atacama desert, in Chile.
This is not going to be another travel story. The 12 hours journey I had a few weeks ago while trippin’ to Chile, didn’t have anything spectacular to talk about.
But from my upper-deck seat of the trans-Andes bus, I watch and photographed the dramatic scenery of the crossing mountains. I passed vast salt lakes overseas by snow-capped peaks and arid plains where even vicuna, the wild llamas of the Andes, was no longer around. The high road went up to almost 5000 meters above sea level, where the outside temperature dropped bellow zero degrees. Part of the road got ice-covered, while the sky remained an imperturbable blue of a summer day.
I’m goin’ to leave these pictures here…
Most of pictures were done by phone through the bus’s window; that’s why some of them don’t have a high quality. Sorry for that.
