RE: Bolivia to Chile

by kiwigal_1

Hi there,

The only way to do this is to take a Salar de Uyuni tour (2 nights/3 days) from Uyuni which will end at the Bolivian border. From there the company should pay for your transfer bus ticket which will take you to San Pedro de Atacama.

Cheers,
Rhianon

Travel Tips for San Pedro de Atacama

If you have a book, go down to the little river

by joernme

Leaving the village into direction Valle de la luna you will come to a little river, which offers you perfect places for reading. I enjoyed listening to the quiet muttering of the riocito, overlooking the desert, having the cleanest air and no other sounds than just the little brook and the pages of my book. Actually it was not a book but I was writing into my big Chile diary. But I'm not going to tell you the secrets that I put in it that day....

WARM clothes & bikinis for geysers visit

by jenellim

The geysers are FREEZING at dawn (sub-zero) so be sure to pack all your winter gear (gloves and hat included) if you want to remain outdoors comfortably until the sun rises. I didn't bring a jacket and even though Cosmo Andino Expediciones (my kind tour agency) was loaned me one, I was still freezing away. Remember that because of the thin air at the high altitude (4000+ m) of the geysers, you don't really have the option of running around to generate heat! On the other hand / extreme, do bring a bikini too because there is a hot spring awaiting you at the end of the geyser trip...

Caspana

by SanguiniA

Some agencies (eg Cactus Tour) will give you the option to visit some traditional villages on the way back from the Geysers. It is quite an enjoyable way to spend the rest of the morning and afternoon, and it is a rare glimpse into traditional andean life in Chile - there are not many indigenous villages.

Caspana is a tiny, pictoresque village nestled in a valley in the Andes. It is quiet here, with not much happening, but it's a nice place to spend an hour or so.

Cave Exploring

by joernme

We left daylight in this hole behind ? and were very lucky in meeting a couple of spanish geologists exploring the caves with professional equipment. They took us down into a long cave system which was getting as narrow as 40 cm, but also holding surprises like big halls and which spit us out at a different place of the area. Great! It was kind of spooky down there but the scientists told us we would not have to be aware of spiders, scorpions or the like as no animals would survive in this extremely dry and salty environment. So if you have a good light, you could do some caves also in your own little group. We did not see to many intersections down there neither, so if you have enough, easy to go back in the cave we discovered.

Vallee de la Luna

Wonderful view over desertic areas and colour-changing mountains at sunset.... 4000 pesos by an agency
