The country of Chile is divided into North, Central Region , Lake District, Patagonia and the Islands.  The North of Chile mesmerizes with the Atacama Desert, one of the driest regions on earth, and the Altiplano, the Andean high plateau with its conical volcanoes and lagoons.  The central region is the heart of Chile\'s political and cultural life and a third of Chile\'s population lives in and around Santiago alone.  The region of lake district is situated between the towns of Temuco and Puerto Montt and is renowned for its snow-capped, active volcanoes.  Patagonia offers the traveller an awe-inspiring natural scenery.  Off the Chilean coast, in the middle of the Pacific lies the solitary Easter Island, named Rapa Nui by its indigenous people, meaning \'navel of the world\' which is one of the most visited destinations in Chile.
