Continental breakfast. Early departure for the astonishing Ischigualasto (an indian word meaning "The place where the moon goes down" or "Moon Valley"), one of the most important paleontological reserves of the world. Its age is estimated at over one hundred and eighty million years old. The field resembles an extraterrestrial landscape. The gradual accumulation of rocks and sand and the sculptural effects of erosion caused by wind and rain have modeled different shapes, which have been named, according to their visual suggestion, such as The Pigeon, Mushrooms, The Parrot, The Kiosk, etc. We continue our most impressive tour visiting Talampaya, the true jewel of natural architecture. This tall flanked gorge with 120 m. of red walls is a pictographic deposit which is guarded at the top by the majestic Condor. Talampaya is one of the greatest gifts nature has given us. Return to San Juan. Accommodation. Dinner.
