Geyser del Tatio, San Pedro de Atacama

Witness the Earth's thermal energy escaping from the ground in the form of scalding hot steam at Geyser del Tatio. The geyser, a highlight of Atacama Desert's thermal fields, shoots steam as high as 6 m (20 ft) into the air. For best views, visit the geyser with a guided tour, arriving at sunrise to make the most of the cold morning air. Dress appropriately--the temperature changes quickly from freezing to baking, so make sure you have some layers to remove.

  • One of the places you have to know, but far from being unmissable! Entry of 10000 pesos, I suggest to go with guide, because the road is winding. I went in winter, cold from-10 to 4000 meters altitude.
