Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Escape -­toat­a­

The Ata­cama Desert may be one of the dri­est places on earth, but it will never be short of in­spir­ing. A sprawl­ing plateau over­lap­ping

Chile, Peru, Bo­livia, and Ar­gentina, it runs 1,000 kilo­me­tres along South America’s Pacific coast and hosts one of the clear­est views of the Milky Way. For a mighty stargaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, look no fur­ther than the Alto Ata­cama Desert Lodge & Spa. In­spired by the desert’s quiet ter­ra­cotta val­leys, the ho­tel not only beck­ons ad­ven­tur­ous trav­ellers to ex­plore

their sur­round­ings through ex­cur­sions such as vol­cano climbs and moun­tain bik­ing dur­ing the day, but also stargaz­ing ac­tiv­i­ties

at its open-air ob­ser­va­tory. Be amazed by the silvery skies against the Ata­cama’s rocky en­vi­ron­ment.
