Description

Las Cornisas is a fantastic hiking trail that links Valle de la Muerte (‘Death Valley’) with Catarpe Valley in San Pedro de Atacama, North Chile. It’s a pleasure for me to guide you there in a half-day adventure full of spectacular views over the Atacama Desert.

Also known as the Valley of Mars, the Death Valley is located in the middle of the Cordillera de la Sal, just 2 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama. It has amazing geomorphic and topographic formations where rocky natural sculptures and sand dunes abound.

Considering the conditions of aridity and the characteristics of a desert environment, it is essential that you understand that it will not be possible to make stops along the trek until reaching our final goal. Therefore, it’s necessary to have a good physical condition and be well acclimatized to heights.

Also remember to bring at least 2 liters of water, comfortable clothes and trekking shoes. The trip includes some trekking food.

About lead guide, Christian Fernandez:

I’m originally from Argentina, but live in Chile since 1998. Now I’m settled in the north of Chile, in San Pedro de Atacama, beautiful town in the heart of the Andean section of the dry Atacama dessert.

From there I organize many expeditions to beautiful peaks on a weekly basis. I’ve done more than 300 high altitude ascents, and more than 25 peaks over 6000 metres.

I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.

This is an easy assent! I ended up paying $200 for a two hour experience and an apple and piece of chocolate ( lunch 😳) If you plan on doing this hike which I highly recommend, don’t book it with these guys - total rip off!! You can go with a group for about $70 if you book locally from San Pedro! It’s a beautiful view from the summit! It’s not even hard to get there ( they drive you most of the way!) My guide was lovely, great chat, nice person but trust me $200 is a massive massive massive rip off for this ‘experience’

The trip was a great experience with a wonderful view! However, unfortunately the tour description does not fit with the actual tour. There was no breakfast with acclimatisation and the duration was shorter. Most important the tour was not guided by Christian, but by some of his employes which did not speak English so we didn't get much explanations except some fragments that we understood in Spanish. Therefore we were a litlle disappointed concerning the guide of this tour.

Are you up for a rewarding adventure - go for the Lascar Volcano. Our very experienced guide Christian Fernandez made sure everything was in place for a great experience, from safe driving to making breakfast to setting a good pace for reaching the top without being too affected by the altitude. Stunning views and a great sense of accomplishment, our thanks to Christian and explore-share.com for a truly memorable hike. Best regards, Erik (37) and Christopher (30), Norway
