Our Sandstones started to form 300 million years ago, after the compacting and hardening of frequent layers of sand, when the Park’s region was close to the South Pole and the world was formed by a great continent called Gondwana. These rocks have a pinkish tone due to the ferruginous cement (iron oxide), which also determines the existence of formations with different degrees of resistance to erosion.
Over the years, the Sandstones have been sculpted by the action of nature, especially the waters, the heat and the organic activity. Therefore, they have different forms that make us travel in creativity. Looking at the varied rock formations and imagining which figures they represent or what animals they look like is returning to childhood, just like finding figures in the clouds of the sky. Stop, admire, observe and let your imagination fly!
Sandstones are the starting point of our tours. Bring your camera or cell phone to take the best photos, repellent to keep insects off and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun's rays. We also offer night tours to observe the moon and the stars. Get more info here.
