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.
