If you've traveled this far, you need to make the morning trek to see the geysers. Be sure to get there right at sunrise. It's spectacular.

It's a beautiful place, but it can get -10 C, so bring it cover and because of the altitude about 4500 meters high, bring it water.

The geysers aren't individually all that amazing but the sheer size and variety of the field is mind-boggling. The lack of sulphur in the water means that it doesn't smell much at all. Best of all was the abundant altiplano wildlife on the trip back....More

Set your alarm early, pack winter clothing. Be prepared to be amazed by number of geysers and the stunning landscape. True there might be bigger geysers in the world, but the location of this is unmatched.

My wife and I drove up for mid-afternoon from S.P. de Atacama. The drive took us some time and we paid our 10,000 CLP for the two of us. The Geyser field was interesting but not as impressive as we were expecting. To be fair...More

This is a fantastic place. It is really worthy to wake up a 5 AM to see the place. The geyser and fumarole are really an incredible view especially at the time of sunrise.

We were there last year and I wish we rather rented a Jeep than relying on the tour operators. 100% possible. Just make sure you have a map and sat nav.
