View erupting Atacaman geysers
Gurgling and steaming at over 4,300m above sea level, the little blow holes of El Tatio reveal their agitation as dawn’s vibrant colours begin to sweep across the sky. Geothermal activity is at its peak here at sunrise, so it’s an early start to reach the geyser field in time to see nature put on its spectacular show.
Adding to what is already an otherworldly scene in the desolate high plains of the Atacama desert, huge jets of steam and water begin to erupt from the earth, backlit against the newly risen sun. This is one of the world’s largest geyser fields and the sight of several jets spouting at once makes this a very special experience.
