Monumento Natural Pichasca

Monumento Natural Pichasca Review

Heading toward the Andes you come across this nature reserve covered with a forest of petrified tree trunks. These play host to dozens of fossils, such as imprints of leaves and outlines of small animals. Nearby is a cave beneath a stone overhang that housed indigenous peoples thousands of years ago. Inside you'll find some cave paintings by the Molle people.
