  • A stop that you leaves without breath, of a side it straight from the Tin Tin and of the other the palette of the painter.

  • Kilometres and kilometres of Highlands to some 4000 meters of height. No trace of human life. Hundreds of kms of tracks of sand... really impressive!

  • Muy lindo parque!!
  • Nice landscape to manage. We found the Park descending from the Quebrada de Escopie heading towards Cachi, this way is beautiful to handle, crossing the line of Tin Tin with countless number of cacti on both sides of the route.

  • Very interesting PN, missing signage to know where to stop individuals. There are 3 paths to explore, the best that is in the middle of the straight line of Tin Tin.

  • Beautiful! A special place in our argentina. The cardon is a tipjca of that area cactacea, by the height grows much. Its wood was and is widely used in construction, as well as handicrafts. It was part of the tour to Cachi pcia dr Salta.
