The overwhelming vastness of the star-studded sky and the nocturnal beauty of the volcanic landscape create a magical setting. As you pick up your star chart and put your eye to the telescope, you begin to recognise constellations, planets and satellites, one after another, like there is no end to the wonders of the sky. The hours tick by but you are so enthralled in your passion that you barely notice… until a shooting star whizzes by. You quickly try and think of a wish, but nothing springs to mind. There is nowhere in the world you would rather be.
The Park’s various lookout points are also a great place to observe the sky thanks to their strategic location in elevated areas with unbeatable visibility. The one at Llano de Ucanca ranks among the best.
