Even though Pali Aike means "desolate place" in aónikenk, the language used by the aborigin peoples of this part of Patagonia, this place is also known as The Devil's slag heap. This park, created in 1970, features 5.030 ha of forests, volcanoes, caves, and pampas inhabited by guanacos, armadilos, and rheas. Its exotic lunar landscapes and the unique mixture of shades of gray will remind you of the lava rivers of the region of Antofagasta.
