We had a tour with our rented bikes on the sunset, and worth a lot! You can go up the mount to see the sunset from there, worth a view, almost aerial, to san pedro

Our 2nd day begins with a new bike trip. This time we had first to Quitor, an ancient fort and temple. While the fort does not really impress, the 30 min hike up to the viewpoint rewards us with a stunning view over the Atacama desert, San Pedro and the Death Valley. Come here early to have enough time for the next stops on the bike trip (Shared the full journey in Atacama on Epiclist).

This is about a 45 min. walk along a road from the center of San Pedro de Atacama. It is very much worth visiting as not much has been restored. There is a small visitor center with displays and nice bathrooms. You can also buy a drink there. If you are a little unsteady on your feet, take a walking stick as as walk down is steep. I enjoyed the visit very much.

Half was closed but we still had to pay full price. When I was here many years ago, the site was open-access and so the transfer to private ownership is a bit disappointing. But still worth a visit.

The ruins are basically roped off so one can only view from a distance. The hike up to the cross is rather arduous but worth it for the challenge and the view. We went on our own and not necessary to go by tour unless you need transportation. Very close to town. A interesting place to start your visit of San Pedro sites.
