This wonder of nature is like being on the moon. Unbelievable. It is well worth a visit but I full day is preferable to a half day as there is so much to see.

Left after breakfast, easy to find interesting movie explaining ancient copper mining techniques. English explanations everywhere, great trails easy directions, don't waste money on a guide. It is self guided anyway if you have a car.

The staff at the entrance is very friendly and informative The park is about 60 km, need a car to visit the different view points. However it is spectacular: beautiful desert scenery that was crafted by erosion. A fantastic oasis awaits you at the end of the tour Not to be missed !
