It’s six o’clock in the morning and the freezing temperature of the altiplano threats to sneak into our clothes.

However, such a magnificent spectacle is worth the sacrifice. Quietly, we admire this sanctuary that atacameños baptized  “old man who cries”.

At 4,200 meters above sea level, the Tatio geysers welcome us.

In front of us, the orange sun hides between fumaroles of up to 10 meters high that unfold over rock and volcanic stones lands.

We are only 89 kilometers away from San Pedro de Atacama, but it seems like we traveled to the beginning of time, when the Earth started to form and man had not yet intentions to exist.

Motivated by curiosity, you approach one of the geysers to closely observe how the bubbling water springs from the depths of the earth.

It seems harmless, but the splashing liquid which transforms into steam before you is more than 85 degrees Celsius hot.

Aware of the danger, you move away a little and thank me for the warning.

However, do not get discouraged! The opportunity to test those waters still exists and to seize it, we go to the natural pools in the surroundings.

Immersed in those exquisite spas, we liberate from the cold and enjoy the scenery that houses the third group of the world’s largest geysers.
