This quedabra offers a nice scenery, and some petroglyphs. However, do not make the road just to go see this.

We also had a very pleasant walk to the stream and around the unexpected oasis. It does get very hot so make sure... More

Back from Miscanti and Miliques we stop in Toconao and have a visit in Jerez valley. It's a cool site very surprining while arriving from the salar. The petroglyphs are not so easy to find..(lack of explanation) and the hike along the valley on the petroglyph is hard in the afternoon...take a lot of water...

Fantastic and interesting oasis of a micro climate in the middle of the desert. It is a relatively easy hike, but do wear water proof shoes as you will need to cross a few streams. Highly recommended.

You wouldn't expect to find plantations of fruits and vegetables in the middle of the desert, but that's what you get. There are a couple of petroglyphs that can be spotted on the rock. The quarry is also interesting to visit, to understand how the locals make the rock blocks, used to build the houses (although nowadays, they mostly use... More

Worth the 1500 pesos as they have done a lot to improve the area byt the river. It will get better year by year after the disastrous flood in 2012 when 39 died.

Odd place, little hard to find out anything about it. We went on the way back from the Flamingo reserves, and it was nice to relax and bath the feet in the stream, there was not much water, but it was a really interesting little place. Do not expect much and then it will seem nice! Great picnic area and... More
