“This is the MUST-ride climb that almost every MTB beginner use to test their new mounts.”— Jose Lillo
But is not that easy. One doesn't simply ride down the Zig-Zag. The terrain in Atacama is really tricky, and it can reach really high temps in summer. Atacama's hills and trails are usually conformed by a really hard rock layer usually called ¨laja,¨ which is really hard and brittle. This rock layer is covered for dust and sand, add the heat of the sun on top, and you have the perfect terrain to eat away your rubbers.
