    In the heart of the Elqui Valley is located Cielo Arriba, a new and exclusive
    retreat and healing centre. Its architecture rescues the aesthetics of the
    indigenous peoples of the sector, with facilities consisting in shared cabins
    and warm rooms, bathrooms with hot water, a spacious yoga room, outdoor
    pool, hot tub, pools and terraces on the shore of the Cochiguaz River. The
    infrastructure is sustainable and works based on solar energy.
    This centre is the last construction of the Cochiguaz River sector, so it is
    immersed in the most pristine nature, with countless alternatives for walking
    and far from the light pollution of cities. A perfect place to enjoy the clear
    night skies of the Elqui Valley.

      "Tuve una experiencia fantástica reservando mi caminata en Torres del Paine con Samadhi Expeditions. Javeria fue maravillosa y muy profesional en la organización de mi viaje - sus respuestas a mis correos electrónicos fueron siempre muy rápidas y útiles, e incluso me ofreció consejos adicionales para mis viajes posteriores. La expedición en sí fue brillante, organizada y perfectamente atendida. No podría recomendar reservar con Samadhi Expeditions lo suficiente. Practiqué mi confianza en el Yoga y estoy eternamente agradecida ♥"

      Samadhi Expeditions me proporcionó una experiencia imaginativa, adaptada y variada de Chile que incluyó actividades como la práctica de yoga en magníficas playas salvajes junto al Océano Pacífico, cabalgatas hasta un espectacular glaciar en los Andes, caminatas en busca de coloridas y únicas aguas termales volcánicas, tours astronómicos en la remota y mística región del Valle del Elqui y clases de cerámica de arcilla artesanal y degustación de vinos en la región alrededor de Santiago". Una experiencia memorable de cinco estrellas con un equipo divertido, amigable y de apoyo y uno por el que seguir regresando".
