The Makay Massif is an incredible natural sanctuary made up of several canyons formed by erosion, where there are islands of greenery that are home to mostly unrecognised species. 

My suggestion:
Don't forget your camera! 
My review

An almost total isolation of the flora and fauna that have populated these last green spaces for millions of years have made it a sort of inaccessible Eden, which includes some parts that have never been explored by man.

Makay is visited during hikes lasting several days, among the twists and turns made of yellow sandstone, which forms the massif. The slopes are not very steep, but the walk, which take place in sandy soils and sometimes in streams, requires good physical condition... therefore, leave it for trekking enthusiasts!

Only recommended for the more adventurous, Makay Massif promises its explorers unforgettable memories in one of the most fascinating places in the world.
