Reserva Natural Chancaní, Volcanes de Pocho y Túneles de Taninga


Pampa de Pocho hides some amazing and little-known postcards of Córdoba: the unique Pocho volcanoes, Chancaní Nature Reserve and the Taninga Tunnels, a scenic route with great views of the Mermela Ravine and Los Llanos in La Rioja. 

It can be visited all year round. In January and February temperatures are very high.

What to see

It is a great place to discover the chaqueño and serrano cordobés forests, and a must-see spot for those who love wild destinations and bird watching. There is a free campsite, without grocery. The nearest town is Chancaní, 5 km away.

Pampa de Pocho

A unique postcard amidst mountains and creeks: five inactive volcanoes and a huge field of caranday palm trees
