Español: Vista de la Duna Dragón en primer plano y de la ciudad de Iquique en el fondo, Región de Tarapacá, norte de Chile. La duna se formó hace aprox. 20 000 años debido a los vientos costeros cuando el nivel del mar estaba 100 m más adentro. La duna tiene una aparencia amenazadora, sobre todo desde abajo, pero es estable. Pasó a convertirse en Santuario Natural en 2005 para su protección pero previamante se eliminó una parte del ala Oeste para permitir el crecimiento de la ciudad de Iquique. La duna tiene una longitud de 6,4 km, una anchura de entre 150-550 m y una altura máxima de 320 m. Iquique tiene aprox. 185 000 habitantes y es una próspera ciudad de rápido crecimeinto gracias al comercio libre de aranceles.
English: View of the Dragon Dune in the foreground and the city of Iquique in the background, Tarapacá Region, northern Chile. The dune is about 20 000 years old and was originated by coastal winds when the sea level was 100 metres (110 yd) further inside. The dune looks menacing, especially from the bottom, but is stable. It became a Natural Sanctuary in 2005 but before that it was partially removed in the West wing to allow the growth of the city of Iquique. The dune is 6.4 kilometres (4.0 mi) long, between 150–550 metres (160–600 yd) wide and 320 metres (350 yd) high. Iquique has aprox. 185 000 inhabitants and is a prosperous and fast-growing city thanks to the free trade activities.
Polski: Widok na Smoczą Wydmę (hiszp. Cerro Dragón) oraz, w tle, miasto Iquique w regionie Tarapacá, w północnym Chile. Wydma ma około 20 000 lat, a zaczęły ją tworzyć przybrzeżne wiatry wtedy, gdy linia brzegowa była przesunięta o 100 m w głąb lądu. Wydma wygląda groźnie, zwłaszcza z dołu, ale jest stabilna. W 2005 roku została uznana za pomnik przyrody, jednak zanim to nastąpiło, jej zachodnia strona została częściowo usunięta, aby umożliwić rozwój Iquique. Wydma ma 6,4 km długości, 150–550 m szerokości i 320 m wysokości, natomiast Iquique ma około 185 000 mieszkańców i dzięki jednej z największych w Ameryce Południowej stref wolnocłowych jest prosperującym i szybko rozwijającym się miastem.
