  • El Tatio geysers

    San Pedro de Atacama Warnings and Dangers

    There is a very strong geyser which has taken the lives of some tourists who dared defy it. They tried to walk on the natural bridge over its hole but with a sudden turn of wind they were choked , fell into it and scorched to death. It's called the "killer"...So don't walk very near it or on the small bridge.
