Day 2 - Travel to San Pedro de Atacama via Calama

A travel blog entry by kirs_t_t


I feel like a real backpacker today...I walked 30mins with my pack on my back and my day pack on my front :) I even had my walking poles, tripod and sleeping bag strapped on the outside. My pack is 15kg chockablock but fine to carry around. I'm definitely happy with the 45L. And also happy with osprey as a brand. I do have a few lessons for next time...have an over the shoulder camera/man/hand/flight bag and fit everything else in your ...

Due south

A travel blog entry by guyfairbank


... town with quite a Germanic feel to it. It almost looked alpine, if it wasn't for the snow capped volcanoes in the distance. Many houses were made of shingles from the local redwood tree and there were roses everywhere. The hotel was above the town.

Back at the Encalada household we had 'onces' and tea with Oscar and Irene chatting about all sorts. ...

Santiago, Chile to Calama, Chile

A travel blog entry by harry4123


... The fuel stop was fast, but when I went in to file the flight plan for the second leg to Calama I got in an argument with DGAC people about flight payments, aggravated to some extent by the language barrier. It turns out when I arrived in Punta Arenas on January 25 I paid for just 30 days of use of the Chilean airports and ATC system. I thought I had paid for 90 days because the piece of paper they gave me from Customs (Aduanas) allowed me to ...

Biggest Pit Mine in The World

A travel blog entry by kumar.jensen


... me $40 bucks. Once that was taken care of I took a free tour of the largest pit mine in the world. Yeah, it was huge. I mean it was one of those things that was so big it was hard to understand how big it was. I have some pictures but if you look up Chuquicamata I am sure you will find some better picks and some good info. It is a copper mine.


This mine is almost 100 years old if I remember correctly. The pictures I have of the town ...
