@eyes.abroad says, In northern Chile, at 3800 meters above sea level stands the Payachatas volcanoes (which means the twins). Surrounded by an amazing flora and fauna, this park has the craziest wild life I ever saw. Llamas, guanacos, vicuñas, flamingos, rheas, foxes, condors... and those are only the one I saw! And as you can see in the picture, the fauna is just as crazy. This plant, called yareta, grow at high altitude and grow into an extremely compact, dense mat. Some of them are estimated to be over 3000 years old!
The lost city of Colombia 🌴 Are you up for this 4 day trek?
Our friend @pash.c says, “Located in the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountain range the Lost city (also called Teyuna by the local indigens) was re-discovered in 1972 by treasure hunters. The city was the local political and cultural center of the Tayrona tribe and abandoned during the Spanish conquest. Nowadays it's a sacred spiritual place for local indigenous population and one of the tourist highlights of the Santa Marta region.
Exploring this insanely bizarre and beautiful landscape 🌈
Palcoyo Mountain, also known as the alternative rainbow mountain, is only a 25minute to the overlook, compared to the 3hr hike at the classic rainbow mountain. It’s quickly becoming my favorite as you get to see 3 different Rainbow mountains, insane red valle, and the Ausangate Glacier in the distance. Shoot me an email to hilton @visitsoam.com to book your tour with us!

Who’s up for an adventure to Iquitos to see a baby tapir!
Been off the grid in the Amazon for the past few days... saw monkeys, a sloth, dolphins, a toucan, but the unexpected favorite was this baby Tapir. He is an orphan that was rescued by some locals and will be eventually released back into the wild. He had cool patterns and a funny nose, and followed me for a while. 😊
