“An amazing hike with INCREDIBLE vistas”

Parque Provincial El Chiflon
Reviewed March 21, 2014

El Chiflon is fairly new park. The guide told us it was only four months old. You meet at the visitor center and then embark on a three hour hike. Eventually the terrain gets a little rough. Hat, sunscreen and boots (not shoes) are a must. The guides are friendly and very earnest. Our guide pointed out many lovely formations and deep knowledge of native "Indian" history, but didn't have a deep knowledge of the geology of the area. What he did know was still fascinating. After we went to our guides house. He sold us beer and soda while we ate the lunch we packed. Big note. I do not suggest trying to do this attraction and then go to another. Do yourself a favor. Go in the morning. Then take the rest of the day off. The hike is of moderate level but even if you are covered the sun is draining. Small kids would burn out on this one. Talampaya and Ischigualasto are much less taxing and with good planning could be done in one long day. I wish I could have done this as a straightup hike - rather than a stop and go hike. Overall just amazing landscape that you get up and personal with.
