Today it is all about the Atacameño traditions! We will learn a lot about this culture. First, a unique experience waits for us in the morning – the traditional caravan. This walk with llamas allows us to bring back to life this centuries-old way of moving in the desert. At the same time our tour guide will teach us a lot about these symbolic animals of the Andes.
Later on, we will visit the community of Ayllu Vilama in the “Cordillera de la Sal” (Salt Range) with its old watermill used by the villagers for a century. Here we can also lend a hand and do some of their daily activities with the members of the Atacameño community.
On the way back we will see again the Cordillera de la Sal, an impressive mountain chain of folded sedimentary rocks with salt deposits.
In the evening we will share a unique cosmic experience: members of the Atacameño community will introduce us to the world of Andean astronomy, to the ancient systems of Lickan Antay for getting orientation from the stars.
