  • I loved being able to see this iconic old gentleman volcano prominently on the skyline, from lots of places on the atacama. Being a person who loves to get his bearings, it's kind of comforting to see...  more »
  • Volcano located on the border between Chile and Bolivia. Visible from the town of San Pedro de Atacama, providing a beautiful sunset!

  • A legend, the most famous of the San Pedro de Atacama, deals with the love triangle between the Licancabur volcanoes, Quimal and Juriques. Legend has it that, in the small space beside them, was another volcano, a lady called Quimal. She and Licancabur were in love with each other and Juriques who was also in love with Quimal, began to court her. This aroused the fury of Licancabur, and the two brothers begin a fight that cluttered the whole balance of the region. One day, enraged by being the favorite volcano Licancabur people of his father (Chipping) and still have reciprocated the love the woman he loved, try owning Quimal. Laskar was so furious that erupted and angrily decapitated Juriques. Thus, Juriques now is "headless" and tourists can enjoy its top plan, next to the perfectly coniforme Licancabur. With its mts 5,920 is sighted from every corner of the region. Is a semi active volcano and his ascent takes 2 days for experienced personnel. If you're ready and like that sort of adventure, the ride is a must. Haven't climbed, was by far.
