Prismas Basalticos, Huasca de Ocampo

4.5
See an unusual geological formation at Prismas Basalticos, a set of tall basalt columns through which a stream of water runs. Located in a scenic ravine, the cluster of thin, matchstick-like columns owes its striking form to the slow cooling of volcanic lava. First championed by German explorer and intellectual Alexander von Humboldt, the natural attraction today benefits from the addition of stairs, walkways, and bridges, making it easy to get up close.

  • It’s a little place with big service. The formation is nice the waterfall is nice but the best part was their people. It is difficult to get there but with Waze or google maps you can do it.
  • You don't have to go all the way to Eastern Europe to admire mother nature miracles. It is a good experience.
  • natural marvel. Geometric rock formations created by lava merting water in a canyon. There is a park around it, near Huasca
  • The place is nice, good views. But it sucks no one accepts credit cards.
  • Beautiful place , great spot to go and spend the day and have a picnic
