    Putre

    February 11 in Chile

    Seit sechs Tagen bin ich in dem Dorf Putre am Rand des Lauca Nationalparks. Hier wohnen 1500 Menschen. Es ist für die Bewohner der umliegenden Dörfer die wichtigste Versorgungsstation. Eine Tankstelle gibt es hier nicht. Dazu muss man nach Arica fahren, was drei Stunden Fahrzeit bedeutet. Es gibt aber eine Schule, in der die Kinder nach Bedarf auch in der Sprache Aymara unterrichtet werden. Die Lehrerin kommt dann extra aus Arica. Der gleichnamige Stamm der Indianer ist in vielen kleinen Dörfern auf dem Altiplano noch vertreten.
    Geografen nennen das hier eine semi-aride Zone. Die Temperaturen schwanken ganzjährig zwischen 20-25 Grad von Nacht zu Tag. Wir hatten ca. 5 Grad nachts. Die Vegetation ist nicht üppig aber durchaus genügend für eine reiche Vielfalt an Tieren.
    Mein Anlass hier zu sein war die Höhe (3550m) und die Anpassung daran. Dies Abenteuer dauerte auch bis vorgestern an und wird immer wieder spannend, sobald ich etwas körperlich anstrengendes unternehme. Der 1.Tag führte mich auf den Cerro Pitacane. Unterwegs entdeckte ich Felszeichnungen der Aymara. Vom 2.Tag am Lago Chungará berichtete ich. Am dritten unternahm ich eine Wanderung zu einem Wasserfall mit dortigem Picknick. Am 4.Tag machten wir bei ungünstigen Wetterverhältnissen eine Rundfahrt über den Altiplano mit erstmaligem Überschreiten der 5000m. Heute bin ich zu den Termas de Jurasi gegangen, um auf 4000m in heißem Wasser zu baden. Ich war mittags fast allein. Dabei ist Baden oder Schwimmen in Chile nicht so selbstverständlich wie bei uns, weil die Dichte mit Gelegenheiten fehlt.
    Für mich waren die Tage entspannend, weil es angenehme Kontakte gab und ich schöne Landschaften in einer erhofften Andersartigkeit begehen durfte. Danke, Putre.

    Kukuli Hotel Putre

    November 23, 2017 in Chile

    We drove straight to Putre from Copaquilla. It was quite dark and around 9:30 pm when we reached Putre. The first hotel we went to was fully booked. We tried a few others but were not too happy about various things in each of them. Finally, we decided to stay at Kukuli Hotel. It cost us 30000 CLP for a night and the room was very comfortable and clean. We went around looking for a restaurant to have dinner. None were open at this hour. We asked at a small convenience store and were directed to the main square. Even here, everything was closed. Our bad luck from Arica had not fully left us yet oy seems 😉
    We decided to go back to the convenience store and biy some stuff to eat. We reached there at 11:05. It seemes the shop closed at 11:00 just a few min back. 😔 We also realized that we had got the room no 13 and it was a Friday. A coincidence???
    Luckily, we saw another shop open a few meters away. It also turned out to be a convenience store. We bought some biscuits, yogurt, juice and cakes for the dinner. This, we had it back in our room.
    We were extremely tired after a fully packed day. The next day we slept in late and woke up only at 10 am. The breakfast was over but we managed to get some leftovers even at 11 am after requesting the reception boy. After the breakfast, we were off to Suri Plaza.

    Jurasi hot springs

    November 25, 2017 in Chile

    We again woke up late but made sure we were down for breakfast before they closed. We checked out and bought some food items like cakes, biscuits, juice bottles and a water can of 6L. This time we were a bit more conservative with our purchases compared to when we went into the Salar Uyuni a few months ago. We left the place by about 11 am. (Late again 😜😜)

    Just outside the village of Putre, about 10 kms away are the Jurasi hot springs. We decided to stop by and check them out. It looked very artificial and there was a huge dog aggressively running towards us. It almost attacked me and retreated only when I bent to pick up a stone. We decided to skip this place.Read more
