CBI site from CordCerro Honaroacute;n Honar

A view of the CBI site (the Llano de Chajnantor) from Cordón Honar, looking north. The mountains in the distance are (from right to left) Volcán Licancabur, Volcán Juriques, and Cerro Toco. In the foreground the plateau slopes slowly down to the Salar de Atacama, out of the picture to the west. The dome of the CBI is visible as a white dot below Cerro Toco (click on the image to view it at full resolution).
