This tour will take us to the east of San Pedro de Atacama, towards the Andes Mountain Range. Our first stop will be the Licancabur lookout, where we will enjoy our breakfast, depending on the wind conditions. Anyways, breakfast can be in the next tourist attraction: the wetland of the Quepiaco River, where we will appreciate the contrast between vegetation and mountain range.


After that, we will go to the Pacana lookout, so then we go visit the monjes de la Pacana (Pacana Monks), bigs tone pillars that rise up lonely in the middle of the desert. Then, we will visit the Quisquiro Salt Flat, which is at more than 4,000 m (13,123 ft.) of altitude. Here we will have time to rest and enjoy the surroundings. Finally, on our way back to San Pedro de Atacama, we will pass by the Aguas Calientes Salt Flat, known for its coloured waters.
