El Tatio Geysers Tour - Half Day Tour - Typical Tour

star-4

Waking up early in the morning for an almost two hours travel is only justified if you experience the dawn surrounded by El Tatio Geysers, exhaling the steam that contrasts with the cold invading your body, but which feels nice because you are sharing a unique effect with nature and the sunrise at 4500 meters high. After a few minutes walking in this phenomenon, you admire it while you warm up your hands and body with a breakfast in the heights of San Pedro de Atacama hills, to then relax in the warm natural river pools that are located a little further downhill. When going down through the same paths that a few hours ago were completely dark, you can appreciate the fantastic view from the edge of the trails. Later on you can make a stop in the Putana wetland to rest, but also to admire the place’s fauna: flamencos and different type of birds in an exceptional lagoon surrounded by the path that leads to the town of Machuca.

The reddish and muddy tones interspersed with white layers illuminated by the intense sun of the Atacama Desert, create a unique landscape that seems from another planet, and that in turn is framed by the imposing Andes Mountain Range, the backbone of America.
