Këto janë pamjet e qyteti më të veçantë në botë.

Qyteti i Huacachina, në Peru. shtrihet në mes të njërës prej zonave më të thata në botë, në shkretëtirën e Atacamas.

Qyteti-oaz  është shtëpia e 96 banorëve dhe ka hotele, dyqane, madje edhe një bibliotekë-oaz.

Liqeni rreth të cilit shtrihet ky qytet i rrallë besohet se ka veti kuruese dhe peruanët shpesh kanë udhëtuar për tu larë në ujërat e tij. Huacachina ndodhet 300 km në jug të Limas, kryeqytetit të Perusë.

Nestled in one of the driest locations on earth, is Huacachina; a town complete with trees, hotels, shops and even an oasis library - tranquil!
An aerial view of the Huacachina oasis in Ica, Peru, 300 km south of Lima. The settlement is home to 96 residents, who live around the lagoon
The lake is believed by some to have healing powers, and in the 1940s, wealthy Peruvians would travel to the location to bathe in its waters
This mystical town is contained within a sea of sand and is completely encompassed by the brutal environment surrounding it
The luscious town was popular with wealthy Peruvians in the 1940s, who used to come to bathe in the lagoon, as it was thought the waters had healing powers
The picturesque village is even featured on the back of the 50 Nuevo Sol note (Peru’s official currency). Like most deserts, the temperature is typically hot, sunny and dry with very little rain. 'High season' falls between May and August, which is winter time for the region
Tranquil waters contrast with the barren surroundings in the Peruvian settlement. The area has been declared a national cultural heritage site, by the National Institute of Culture, and it is hoped that this tranquil oasis will never become a mirage in the desert
Although there are many stories how the oasis was created, one version states that the rolling sand dunes were created around the pool when an Incan princess fled her bath after being discovered bathing by a young hunter
Legend has it that a beautiful Incan princess was discovered bathing by a young hunter. When she fled and the pool of water she left behind her became the lagoon
The Incans make their living on guests coming from afar to climb to the top of a wind-sculptured sand dune and watch the sunset over the golden landscape, before sailing on down rented sandboards or dune buggies
Huacachina residents rent out sandboards and buggies for backpackers who travel to this magical town. Visitors can experience the impressive sand dunes and magnificent views
Due to landowners building wells to access groundwater, coupled with evaporation during summer high temperatures, the lagoon water levels have dropped over the past few years. In an effort to combat this, water has been pumped into the the lake from Ica for Huacachina inhabitants
