  • This Hill is located approximately 50 km from San Pedro de Atacama, in fact you can see from the people, we climbed in a City car without problems up to 5,100 meters, in 4 x 4 vehicles could reach 5.310 masl. It is a hill of difficulty medium whose top is 5604 masl, has several well marked trails. You can find the route we did with photos and highlights on Wikiloc

  • The ascent to the Toco Hill does not require great physical condition but if much determination and become acclimatized a few days in San Pedro before boarding. They are 5600 m high, it is climbing on foot in loas approx 4000 m. A great experience with the best view of San Pedro will even get to see the Green lagoon of Bolivia. It is very important to go with a guide who will help you take the necessary breaks to not apunarse, we climbed with Andrés de Sol Atacama Hostel, the best experience of the trip was to reach the top.

  • The Jeep took us down to 5200 m and then had to climb 400 metres to the Summit, at this level a real challenge. But we were rewarded with a fantastic all-round visibility.

Where to stay in San Pedro de Atacama

As the stepping-stone to the nearby national reserve, San Pedro de Atacama offers an impressive range of hotels and guesthouses. Despite the big selection, prices remain relatively high throughout the year due to the town's status as northern Chile's tourist hub. At the peak of the summer season (late December to late March), some budget-friendly hostels even require single travelers to share a room with another guest. If you wish to avoid that, look into one of the hotels, many of which cluster around the town's central area and line the main street.
