Desierto de Atacama Chile by Vk30 Desierto de Atacama Chile by Vk30
- El desierto de Atacama es el más árido del planeta. Se ubica en el norte de Chile, entre los ríos Loa y Copiapó, en la Región de Antofagasta y el norte de la Región de Atacama. Este desierto está enmarcado por la cordillera de los Andes y la costa, cubriendo unos 105.000 km². Forma parte de la ecorregión del desierto del Pacífico y limita al norte con los desiertos costeros del Perú. Investigaciones, como la del National Geographic, consideran que la zona costera del Perú forma parte del desierto de Atacama,[1] [2] incluyendo los desiertos al sur de la Región Ica.

- The Atacama Desert is one of the few deserts on Earth that does not receive any rain. It is a plateau in South America, covering a 600-mile (1,000 km) strip of land on the Pacific coast of South America, west of the Andes mountains. The Atacama desert is, according to NASA, National Geographic and many other publications, the driest desert in the world,[1][2][3] due to the rain shadow on the leeward side of the Chilean Coast Range, as well as a coastal inversion layer created by the cold offshore Humboldt Current.[4] The Atacama occupies 40,600 square miles (105,000 km2)[5] in northern Chile, composed mostly of salt basins (salares), sand, and felsic lava flows towards the Andes.

Qué genial es esa fotografía, realmente impresionante. ¿Ese es el "Valle de la Luna", cierto? Nunca he estado ahí, pero me han comentado mucho sobre su belleza.
