Tierra Atacama / Atacama Desert Tours

Vallecito

On this walk we will go to the salt mountain range located to the west of the San Pedro Oasis. Once there, we will make three stops. The first is a wonderful landscape with lots of selenite (plaster glass) that begins to shine with the morning sunlight.

At the second stop we will see a huge salt crystal, which plays beautiful music thanks to temperature changes that cause its crystals to expand and contract. This stop features an abandoned bus, a ruin from the time of the salt mines.

At our last stop we will visit a lookout that leads to a giant sand dune, through which we can descend as we get in touch with our playful sides by running and taking in this lunar landscape.
