The Atacama Desert, the driest place on earth is blossoming spectacularly

The Atacama Desert in Chile, one of the driest places on Earth has blossomed, after some unusual rain earlier this year. The desert is primarily located in Chile along the Pacific Ocean. It received 0.96 inches of rainfall in a single day during March, which was equivalent to approximately 14 years of precipitation.

The desert once went more than 14 years without rain in the early 20th century. Due to scarce rain, flowers blossom rarely in five to ten years.  But this year’s rain has led to the most beautiful and spectacular blossoming in the history of the Atacama desert.
