Tarapac√° | Pampa del Tamarugal

WI_ch377a.jpg

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 root system of the tamarugo (Prosopis tamarugo), which was replanted in this place, to explore the water resources.
