  • We visited the national observatory as well as some of the areas where you can appreciate stunning landscapes. Highly recommended. Important to call before you go to verify that the observatory is open for tours.

  • The road to get to the park is in very good condition, the landscapes change unexpectedly. To rent a cabin, you must call one month in advance and pay there. There's nothing around shops, no gas stations, nothing. Check that your vehicle is in excellent condition. The rangers are very friendly, they recommended trails depending on our capabilities and the landscapes that we could see, spectacular. Beautiful place!
