04.30 a.m. Pick up from the hotel, after around 1.5 hours of travel, we arrive at the Geysers of the Tatio. The guide will show us the geothermic field, and following the delimited trails is possible to see the columns of steam, geysers and pools of boiling water.
The “magma” close to the surface warms the undersurface stone what in touch with the undersurface water produces this singular phenomenon.The best time to see them is at sunrise when each geyser is surmounted by a column of steam that condenses in the bitterly cold morning air. The steam plumes disappear as the air warms up.
There is wreckage at the site from an old project of 1920, for harnessing geothermal power.
You will have breakfast with the view to the geysers, after it is possible to take a bath in the thermal pool. On the road back to San Pedro we will make some stops to see and to take photograph of the landscape, volcanoes, Vicuñas (Vicugna vicugna), cactus and typical endemic flora and fauna of the desert.
