Dipping in and out of Chile

Days 155 - 157

After leaving Bolivia we briefly passed through Chile on our way to the Argentinian border. Our first night in Chile was a little unconventional as due to a road closure because of heavy rain and landslides blocking our route up ahead we were forced to make do camping at a disused building site. It was a fairly uncomfortable introduction to a forthcoming week of mostly camping but one that helped us to bond as a group at our misfortune.

After a visit to the quaint tourist town of San Pedro de Atacama we then headed out on tour of Moon Valley to trek parts of the impressive landscape created centuries ago by the movement of tectonic plates in the area.
