El Tatio Geysers are one of the majors attractions at Atacama Desert, if not the most famous.

Must be one of the most visited places in all Chile.

Indeed, it´s a very special place. It´s a kind of surreal manifestation of the planet, cause you have the impression you are in a cloud factory.

All this spontaneous phenomena is caused by the meeting of groundwater table with the heat of the volcanic field which, when release to the surface by the diverse wholes and cracks, in contact with the andean cold air, produces these rare white smoke that looks like clouds.
