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.

  • The geyser of the tatio is an experience to do. Tours usually depart at dawn to allow the view of the geyser in the morning. Recommended a tour.

  • The place is beautiful and the phenomenon is wonderful maaasss is VERY cold! I went to tennis and I had the feeling my fingers had frozen! It was 8 degrees when we arrived. In addition to a lot of clothing, my tip is: Use 3 thermal socks and wool, closed boot, thermal pants and another 2 on top, enough coat and thermal clothing, and a balaclava (I used it and was very good). It's a cold pain in the bone!
