We took a 2 hour flight from Santiago de Chile to Calama and then drove two hours south to San Pedro de Atacama. This adobe touristic village was our base for the next 5 days.
For the next 5 days we visited Laguna Chaxa and saw flamingos, Laguna Miscanti at 4200m, Pukara De Quitor, Valle de La Muerte, Valle de la luna for the sunset and Geysers del Tatio.
The country side of this area was all breath taking. We were very grateful to have a rented cars as we could stop anywhere we wanted.
I took some photos along the way and here is the link:
