Island City in the Andes (please view larger) Putre sits in the NE tip of Chile along the road to Bolivia just below the pasturelands of the altiplano. The town is surrounded by a maze of steep quebrada valleys creating an "island in the sky" effect. The volcanos of the Lauca NP loom in the background.
