El Tatio Geyser Field

El Tatio Geyser Field

El Tatio Geyser Field is located within the Andes Mountains of northern Chile at 4,320 meters above mean sea level. With over 80 active geysers El Tatio possesses the third-most geysers of any location in the world.
As the sun is rising is the best time to view the geysers. However, being at such a high altitude at such an early hour means that it is extremely cold. Be careful when walking around, as many tourists have been hurt or even killed by falling into the boiling geysers.
