No water, no parking, no paintings. Seems like the wrong place. Nice landscape though. Drove to the actual Laguna viewpoint. 4wd needed for last km. No water

Nice spot, parking space, with hill and laguna views. Petroglyphs behind stone corrals so easy to find. Not a bad assortment, have fun trying to distinguish old from new! Also chinchillas in the rocks so take care with dogs. Actually went to other overlook parking first (OK with high clearance 2wd) which has a very big parking area so another possibility, but then you have a walk down the hill to Laguna!

If you want to drive to this spot and the lakeside, don’t follow the signs to the lake, they take you to an overlook parking area where you can hike down to the lake but are not beside it. Laguna was dry when we were here, no birds, a couple vicuñas and alpacas around. We never found any paintings, but we did see some petroglyphs, not sure about their authenticity, some were covered with names and initials. The striated hills here were very pretty.

Beautiful place. We stayed a bit before the first car park because it was very windy (the wind died at night in the end). Lots of vicuñas and birds on the laguna in the morning. Peaceful.

Great spot to explore, and there were flamingos! We also spent the night at the far end of the laguna, perfect for our last night in Argentina before crossing into Bolivia
