Mirador de Kari, Piedra del Coyote, San Pedro de Atacama

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
A rocky promontory that stands high above the Valley of the Moon, Mirador de Kari, Piedra del Coyote affords sweeping views of the landscape below. Crowds tend to gather here at sunset (when most tours come); sunrise also draws lots of visitors. For a less crowded experience, arrange for your own transportation and avoid peak times. An overhanging rock has become a famous spot to take pictures, but visitors form a long line for the opportunity. If driving on your own, ask the way, as a lack of signage can make the attraction difficult to find.

  • Went to watch the sunset from this spot and it was incredible. The shades of colours from red to orange to yellow and all in one was spectacular! Magnifico.... certainly recommend!!!  more »
  • As others point out this is officially roped off although it didn't stop people going there and posing anyway. Also as others point out this is packed at sunset as every tour stops here. My suggestion...  more »
  • This rock is now officialy off limits, due to a huge crack that appeard on it, making it not 100% safe. You can still go over the rope and take the iconic picture, but be warned that the rock might fa...  more »

  • Beautiful view. Although it gets a little crowded. But still, give it a chance to watch the sun set.
  • As there are many tourists, the organization of the park Valle de La Luna has placed a rope that "prevents" people from approaching Coyote Stone. Even so it is a disputed tourist spot and some tourists end up mocking the limitation. A good tip here is to get there early, maybe in the morning. The light will also yield good photographs of the coyote's stone (since it is not in the opposite direction of the person who wants to be photographed, as it happens at sunset) and is much more empty. If I get to the sunrise, I believe it's free and a unique view of the Valley!
  • Incredible and personally my best view over Valle de La Luna and all other places.
  • Nice view. But really crowdy at the sunset because all tours come at the same time.
  • Fantastic views. We had a tour group go up here for the sunset and it was fantastic.
