  • Thorny hike ... with a pitch of over 3200 metres but well worth it. The road coming from salta is partly unpaved.

  • I crossed the Park by ruta 33 coming of Salta. It's a road not to be missed. After climbing the Andes by Cuesta Obispo you enter in the Tintin and is presented with the wonderful view of cardones. There is a time of year that in addition to the cactus bushes bloom and the landscape is all yellow.

  • Nature brings theirs, but think lack of tourists. I wanted a bath, but there was no health, not even a shadow for shelter from the scorching sun. It is not to stay long. I was on the way to Cachi, from Salta. I liked the location and the kindness of Rangers.

  • 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.
