Chile & Easter Island - Norte Grande (Chapter)
This is the Norte Grande chapter from Lonely Planet’s Chile & Easter Island guidebook.
Sun-scorched Norte Grande is made up of Andean lagoons, snow-capped volcanoes, salt flats and sensuously perforated coastline. Famous as much for its hilltop observatories as its massive copper mines, those vast, uninhabited spaces touch the soul and the imagination.
