Photographer's Note

30km north of San Pedro, on the way to the Tatio Geysers, you're crossing the Rio Purifica. It flows through a narrow Canyon (Quebrada) down to the Atacama Desert. At the entrance of the Canyon you'll find these beautiful grasses as well as countless cactus up to 7 (!) Meters high.
The less known and visited trek through this fantastic canyon is definitely a must for every Canyoneer and a worthwhile day trip from San Pedro de Atacama.
