'''''Paso Colchane - Pisiga''''' on the CH15 between Colchane in Region I Tarapacá and Pisiga Bolivar in the Oruro Department. It's at 3700 meters above sea level and the border is open from 08:00 till 20:00 (at least in the summer; we don't know if it's open year-round). The immigration offices are about 100 meters apart and the total distance from town to town is about 2 km. On the Bolivian side is a gas station at the end of town in direction Oruro. Let us know if you hitchhiked this border!
'''''Paso Salar de Ollagüe''''' between Ollagüe in Region II Antofagasta and Avaroa in the Potosí Department in Bolivia.Both villages have a gas station and the distance between immigration offices is 6 km.It's open from 08:00 till 20:00 year-round.The road is made of gravel and there's parallel train tracks. The nearest Chilean city is Calama and in Bolivia it''''s the city of Uyuni. Let us know if you hitched this border!
'''''...Paso Portezuelo del Cajón''''' between [[San Pedro de Atacama]], Region II Antofagasta and... well... nothing in particular in the Potosí department of Bolivia. The Chilean immigration is on the Ruta B-241 inside San Pedro de Atacama, so don't miss it. The road then turns into the CH27 and has to be followed for 47 km until there's the actual border. The Bolivian immigration is on the actual border. There's the Laguna Verde, the Laguna Blanca and the famous Salar de Uyuni on the way to [[Uyuni]] in Bolivia. Perhaps there are a few villages, but nothing noteworthy. Uyuni is the nearest city, which is nearly 400 km from this border, so don't underestimate it! There's loads of tour offices in the touristy San Pedro de Atacama to organize a trip to Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni and to go to the city of Uyuni and not much non-tourism traffic.Best hopes are to hitch a ride with people who own a 4WD and are traveling the whole distance..The immigration office in San Pedro de Atacama is also used for crossing the '''Paso de Jama'''into [[Argentina]] towards [[Jujuy]]. Let us know if you crossed from Chile into Bolivia via this border!
