Many people are attracted to Elqui because the Tibetan monks that came felt an energy vortex between Elqui and Lhasa, marked the place up in the Cochiguaz Andes, just up the valley from us, which you can visit and tour around the many magical places in and around Pisco Elqui.
....The town of Pisco Elqui is full of restaurants, pubs, tourism offices and mini markets.
