Santiago to Bolivia - should I go via Argentina?

Can and should I go north through Argentina rather than through Chile?

Hi. I begin backpacking in South America soon by flying into Santiago. From there I intend to head to the Bolivia border. However, I get the impression that there is little of interest in North Chile, and many people opt to take a massive bus journey to San Pedro de Atacama. Therefore, I'm wondering if its possible and recommended to cross into Argentina and move North over there instead, then returning into Chile once near San Pedro de Atacama? Reply to this
