Night falls in the Ischigualasto Provincial Park, and we can’t help being amazed by that infinite starry sky.

Until you can pronounce its name correctly, you have enough time and excuse to visit it. Ischigualasto Provincial Park, Province of San Juan.

The Ischigualasto Provincial Park, also called Valle de la Luna, is located in northwestern Argentina. Its desert landscapes similar to the lunar surface have impressive rock formations in areas such as the «Painted Valley» and the «Bocce Court». In the park museum, dinosaur fossils from the Triassic period are exhibited. Cerro Morado has trails and views of the top of the valley.

On a forty kilometer circuit, five stopping points (Stations) are planned, where you can see curiosities of nature where the intervention of the hand of man is totally absent.

Ischigualasto is a name of Diaguita origin, which means «place where life does not exist» or «place of death». Other versions indicate that the name means «place where the moon sets».
