Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Ride through a moon-like landscape when you tour Reserva Provincial La Payunia, a nature preserve dotted with volcanic cones. Take a tour of the reserve to see the barren land from dry deserts up to the volcanic craters. You'll drive over volcanic rock beds, including collapsed lava tubes, and see snow-capped mountains in the distance. Especially notable is the black terrain formed by volcanic ash, dubbed Pampas Negras. Part of the reserve lacks almost any vegetation, though you'll find some wildlife here, including guanacos, armadillos, chinchillas, and more.

  • A park full of volcanoes and fumaroles, very inhospito, as if it were a Martian landscape. is You can access volcanoes and their crowns on foot. You must circulate in auto by the demarcated roads to prevent damage to the environment. It can be no lowering of the vehicle, or you can stop and walk to places of attractions and viewpoints. There are no services of any type, only Rangers

  • Beautiful walk family and photo hunting. A beautiful walk with lunch, making contact with part of the Mendoza nature not seen. Recommended for families and children, especially.

  • This site is worth knowing. It will be declared patrimony of the humanity. It is the largest concentration of volcanoes in the world. The creation is written there. A unique site.
