SCIENCE MYSTICISM EN ATACAMA

GEOSITES "TONALITA ORBICULAR" AND “ZOO OF STONES”

PART TIME
Orbicular Tonalite (also known as orbicular granite) is a very particular rock that was declared a "Nature Sanctuary" in 1981. Although there other similar outcrops in Chile, none of them reach the particular beauty and sharpness of the Orbicular Tonalite in Caldera. In addition, we will visit the largest taffoni field in the world, where the rocks inside the Earth have been fascinatingly sculpted.
