“walking on the moon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

the scenery there is totally moon like, the oxigen saturation of your blood is very low which make it difficult to think and you forget and leave behind all your everyday problems, the whole area is absolutely worth seeing, headache is 100% sure

“Stunning location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

The highest active volcano in the world is located in a starkly beautiful and remote part of Chile. It's an action-packed (in terms of scenery) route from Copiapo just to get to the vicinity - up through the chasm after La Puerta, the Cuesta Codeceo, Salar Maricunga, Nevado Tres Cruces, grazing guanacos at las cascadas (I forget the proper name). Take your photos from the right location and you can compare your snaps with the photos NASA is getting back from Mars!

The view of the volcano from the University de Atacama refugio is one that I can watch for a long time (partly because I'm too unfit to even think about climbing it!).
