Tarapacá | Pampa del Tamarugal
WI_ch377a.jpg Tarapacá  |  Flowering cactus Thumbnails Valle de Lluta  |  Brawingia candelaris

Location: Reserva Nacional Pampa del Tamarugal. The high groundwater level in this place leads to a very high salt content of the soil. However, it also allows the deep rooting system of the tamarugo (Prosopis tamarugo), which was artificially planted in this place, to explore the water resources.
