In the high walks, particularly the Geysers del Tatio, always in the early morning, the temperatures are below zero degrees Celsius. Therefore, warm clothing has to be designed to cover this broad spectrum. The best thing of all is to use the “onion” technique, several layers and none very thick (the ideal is to use a windbreaker, a “fleece” or “polar” vest, and under them the normal clothes. and for tall rides, cotton underwear helps a lot.
  • A good pair of walking shoes, ideally boots or boots, and if you can, a pair of light shoes to walk in the village and rest.
  • Take a bath trade to visit the Geysers and the Puritama Hot Springs.
  • The relative humidity of the air is always very low. If your skin is sensitive to this condition, bring moisturizing creams with you.
