The altiplano: volcanoes, dunes, salt flats and surreal landscapes

Much more like neighbouring Bolivia and its section of the altiplano, in the northwestern corner you will find a lunar like landscape, traditional adobe villages and ruins of ancient civilisations. From the pretty colonial city of Salta to Cafayate and the highest altitude vineyards in the world, the scenery is endless. Then venture deep into the Argentinian altiplano, the Puna Desert which many refer to as the most surreal landscape on Earth. This is nirvana for landscape photographers - salt flats, collapsed dunes, dormant volcanoes, pumice stone fields, stromatolites and many other otherworldly formations.
