The ArcoIris valle is something different of all the valleys that you probably have seen. With diffenrent sand collors in the middle of the desert scenario offers to us a unique view. If you have the chance to go there by trekking is even better....More

getting to the Rainbow valley may take some preplanning with a map. Not sure as I went with a guide, but maybe an hour from San Pedro on the highway to Calama and then a secondary road all the way to the valley... More
