We came here because the Laguna Miscanti and the geysers were closed due to snow and were still extremely happy with it. It shouldn't be the top thing on your list but it should be very high. The rocks tower over you and have varying...More

Beautiful trip in the desert with colorful rocks all around. The walk was very nice and we talked about geology, rocks and their unique colours. Perfect if you want to take beautiful pictures.

This is an easy half day trip to a spectacular valley. Many weird shapes of rocks and hills through erosion full of different compositions of minerals. Green, reds, white, yellow, blueish it's all there and it contrasts sharply with the deep blue morningsky. For those...More

getting to the Rainbow valley may take some preplanning with a map. Not sure as I went with a guide, but maybe an hour from San Pedro on the highway to Calama and then a secondary road all the way to the valley... More
