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

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. Our San Pedro de Atacama trip planner makes visiting Mirador de Kari, Piedra del Coyote and other San Pedro de Atacama attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A good spot to take pictures in the back of the rides, but without great attractions and bathroom only inca

  • this was by far one of my favorite parts of our tour. We walked down a ravine into the canyon and picked up the dried river bed of salt.  more »
  • We have also from the Hipe of the sunset to let, what's finally totally overrated. With increasing dusk, it is also really full, what takes the mood a bit. Outside the Park, there are places where you can park the car for much better shots genügent.

  • Head here for the barren otherworldly terrain, stay for the sunset. There are a variety of destinations here and most people of average fitness level should be able to ride it all in a day. It gets very cold if you stay after sunset so bring your jacket. There are plenty of tour options for this destination but don't spend over €100/$120USD/$150AUD for two people as you may be getting ripped off. Getting below these amounts should be easy with a bit of haggling.
  • Amazing views! A must see. Be careful where you walk and always respect the designated walking areas
  • Perfect at sunset. Take photos of people with the sun behind the photographer
  • Amazing place to visit unlike anywhere else I have been. Felt like I could have been on Mars.
  • Very desolate place. Strange to see no vegetation. Stars at night would be very clear. No light pollution.
