Beautiful Hike and Views!
Jul. 2019
This is a must and least visited when you're in San Pedro. Not to be missed when you see amazing landscapes.

Ride it!
Mar. 2018 • Couples
We rode that trail with our mountain bikes, early in the morning. Sunrise, amazing views, this was an incredible experience. You can also hike it or ride it on horse back. Whatever way you choose you will have a great time!

One of the best hikes around
Dec. 2017 • Family
We loved this trail. In particular the views from the rim and walking along the edge of the trail -- the views were outstanding. By the end of the walk, we had sand everywhere but loved every bit of the hike. The hike was pretty easy.

Nice walk
Aug. 2016 • Family
The nature is wonderful, it is difficult to explain, you have to see! What was surprising that we were alone, which is quite rare in the San Pedro surroundings and for me it was very appreciable. The trekking (we did it with a guide Filipe, Thank's Filipe!) was not difficult at all, the sleepy areas are not a lot, the altitude is not much (comparing to the other parts) and it is a relaxing walk more than a real hard trekking. I think that if it is better marked it can be done by any one alone. It is a pity that in San Pedro the possibilities to walk alone are rare and the maps and the tagged itineraries don’t exist.

Nice Vantage Point and Big Sand Dunes
Mar. 2016 • Couples
The vantage point of this hike is at the top of the plateau which allows you to see the entire San Pedro de Atacama in the distance. You then realize just how much of an oasis the city is with the river running through it. We walked to the plateau, checked out the sights, then RAN down TWO GIANT sand dunes!! Maybe two hundred feet high! Very fun and initially, a bit scary because of the steepness of the sand dunes. When we got to the bottom we saw people actually sand boarding down the dunes! Slow going for them and then a very steep walk back up. This spot is maybe 7 minutes from town and interesting enough to make a visit.

Fun and breathtaking
Dec. 2014 • Solo
Climbing to the top from the bottom was a lot more exhausting than I expected, but it was well worth it. It's truly a Martian type landscape and I was in awe. As much fun as I had climbing up, getting down was a lot more fun!

Beatiful, not so interesting
Mar. 2014 • Family
We had already visited the Valle de la Luna and Valle de La Muerte, so this trail was not so interesting - a little more of the same. Chjildren had fun in the way down the dune.
