    When you think of the desert you think in a place full of dangers and inhospitable, but this park is something that you can't miss. It has areas of camp, well defined paths if you love the hiking and at least two craters open to the public. Very little light pollution, making a paradise of night photography. Perfect place for two days of camp. It does not have services so you have to bring what is necessary. Also refer to the time of the year since the very hot days and cold nights in the desert are as well which should be prepared.
