Licancabur is a now extinct volcano in the Atacama Desert, on the border between Chile and Bolivia. It is 5916m high and can be seen from almost everywhere around the chilean town San Pedro de Atacama. Close to Lincancabur is a flat extinct volcano of 5704m called Juriques. On the other side of the salt plain Salar de Atacama you can find Cerro de Quimal (4278m), the highest mountain of the Cordillera Domeyko.

Licancabur ("mountain of the people") is the sacred mountain of the Atacameño, the ingenious people of the Atacama Desert. He is their guardian and protagonist of many legends and traditions. "He", because the Atacameño believe, that volcanos - like Licancabur - are male and mountains - like Quimal - are female. One Legend, that has many versions, is that of Licancabur and Quimal.

  • Stay with your local health insurance
  • Get a travel insurance (valid 6-8 weeks)
  • Get an overseas health insurance (restricted period of validity)

Visa - mania

Would you believe this?

Being citizen of one of the many countries without required visa for Colombia, we didn't think much about it at first. You usually get a 90 days Tourist visa stamped into your passport at imigration. Then one of the language schools requested a student visa, as we would be staying in school more than 60 days. Huh? I mean, this is Colombia, not the US ?!

Who is writing here?

Hi, I am Manu. A year ago I decided that I need a break from the daily routine as a software engineer and quit my job. With my boyfriend I will travel the world for the next months. And I will share all the pictures, stories and whatever comes my way in this blog.

I am happy to hear from you! :-)
