The main tourist attraction of Talampaya National Park, the 150 meter (492 ft) high red clay walls of Talampaya Canyon are truly a sight to behold in Argentina. Revered for its humbling grandeur and scenic splendor, hiking the canyon provides both an incredible natural experience as well as an opportunity to explore a truly unique geological formation, giving visitors a glimpse into the world as it looked millions of years ago.
The park has limited camping sites located near the canyon, so if you're venturing out into Talampaya between September and April (recommended), don't miss the opportunity to pitch a tent beneath the stars in one of Argentina's most spectacular natural settings.
Location:Talampaya National Park, La Rioja Province, Argentina
