Full description
Visit to the Ischigualasto Provincial park, world natural heritage and natural science museum. Is located in the northeast of the province of San Juan, 205 miles from its capital city. Popularly known as the Moon Valley, this fascinating and strange place covers about 153 000 acres and, together with its neighbor, Talampaya in the province of La Rioja, it was declared Mankind’s Heritage. Its importance resides in the scientific value of the paleontological findings made in the area: an almost complete sequence of the Triassic Period of the Mesozoic Era. To visit Ischigualasto means walking on the lands that dinosaurs inhabited 180-million years ago. The moon-like soil and strange geoforms sculpted by the water, sun and wind on the rocks over million of years, has turned this place into an otherworldly site. Return by Nacional Route 150, taking a new route to Cuesta del Huaco. Return to San Juan in the afternoon.

It would have been better if I had received the same commentary in English as the other travellers did in Spanish.
