  tatio at sunrise
by cbeaujean

you have to leave very early in the night (4 a.m.! they pick you at the hotel) with an organized tour,don't try to go with your own vehicle:very bad road and no arrows (of course)....if they see you are following them with your 4x4,they drive quicker...I dwell on this:I don't like organized tours excepted if it's absolutely necessary as here!
for unyielding travellers only:climb in daylight,pitch your tent and spend the icy night there to be ready for sunrise magic spectacle among tours people.
you arrive just in time at the very beginning of the day to enjoy the spectacle...this is the best moment to enjoy the spectacle when the differences between temperatures air/water are optimal to enjoy the fumaroles!

Address: organized tours starting from san pedro de atacama
