Wicked Chile, Atacama Desert, Paso Sico

Six riders from Antofagasta, Chile (Atacama desert) to the border with Argentine at Paso Sico (4,500 m above sea level) (14,000 feet).
Two nights staying at San Pedro de Atacama, good hotels & good food.
Total days: 3
Total ridden distance: 1,400 Km (30% Tarmac, 70% Gravel)
Places visited: San Pedro, Salar de Atacama, Toconao, Socaire, Peine, Sico

Excellent trip, safe and nice places, nice views of the Atacama Desert (Dakar 2010).

Here goes some pictures.
Regards from Chile

Marcos,

Bonitas fotos.

el año que viene en noveimbre queremos hacer un viaje por esa zona.

¿Conoces el camino San Pedro de Atacama - Laguna Hedionda - Uyuni?
Sería de gran ayuda.

un saludo

Carlos

Can you tell me something about the gas in Tolar Grande?

We'll leave San Antonio de Los Cobres, go to Tolar Grande, Mina La Casualidad and Mina Julia, come back to Tolar Grande, then go to Paso Sico.

I don't know if have suficient gas to do it, can you tell me?

Hi Wallace.
That is my new Tenere.
6K km and no problem so far, very reliable and smooth.
Hope you can return to Chile soon.

Marco

Hi Robson,
No fuel in Tolar Grande, only in San Antonio de los Cobres.
Tomorrow I´ll send you a map with distances.
After Paso Sico, are you going to San Pedro de Atacama ?
Regards,
Marco
