Nature never stops surprising: one of the most incredible natural wonders takes place in the Chilean Atacama Desert, which considered being the driest place on Earth. This land may not see a drop of rain for years. However, a true miracle happens in the driest of all deserts when the long-awaited spring rainfalls come and resurrect the sleeping life and thousands, or even millions of neat pink wildflowers cover the area.

The last time Chile saw this unbelievable beauty was between September to November of 2015 and the next flowery spring is expected no sooner than in 5–7 years, sometime between 202​0 and 2022.
