The Isluga Volcano National Park is located at altitudes of approximately 4,000 masl. This means that it is a very high place which normally affects the discomfort of visitors with dizziness, nausea and vomiting caused by the puna.
The Tarapacá Region belonged to the Inca Empire, then it was in Peruvian hands for more than 500 years until the Pacific War. It was inhabited thousands of years ago by different indigenous cultures, the most important being the Chinchorro culture.
The Isluga Volcano National Park mixes the mystical landscape that rises from the foothills to the Andean highlands with a set of ancestral practices. It is located near the town Colchane and was declared a national park in 1967.
It is located at 4,000 meters above sea level, so the flora is scarce and the cáctus, altiplano and bofedales bush begin to appear. On the way you can see vicuñas, alpacas, ducks and flamingos due to its shallow waters.
In the tour you can also enjoy the Chumisa hot springs with waters that exceed 40 ºC, steam and mud baths. There are also Puchuldiza geysers whose jets of water freeze during the winter.
For lovers of trekking, there are trails to visit the villages of Isluga whose churches are national monuments.
The Isluga Volcano National Park is undoubtedly one of the best landscapes that we can find in the I Region of our country for its reliefs of heights, one of the wonders in Chile.
