Sunset View from Pukara de Quitor
Pukara de Quitor is the site of ruins of an ancient fortress built by the local population, AtacameƱos, from invading forces. The top of Pukara is accessible and offers a chance to see desert topography in all of its glory. If you're staying in San Pedro de Atacama, don't hire a tour bus to take you to Pukara, Rent bikes from one of the dozens of shops in town center, pack a snack, and ride 20 minutes out to watch the colors of the sand and rocks change as the sun sets.
