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

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.
