There are many lovely places to see the view , some of them require you to climb on rocks that can be very steep.
Try to be extra careful or even avoid the dangerous places here - there are many beautiful observation post that are not risky.
Ibex on the streets
Although it can be a must see activity it can be also very dangerous to meet an Ibex with you car or while walking around.
Pay attention and if you see one (or more) don't make him angry , take a pictutre say hello and leave him alone.
This is a desert so in the summer it can be very hot and dry , so if you are in the area don't forget to use a hat , sun cream and carry water.
On the other hand , the area is a little bit high so during the winter it can be very cold and it snows once in a while.
Driving in the area of the crater
While you are driving in the area pay attention to the road , it is very curvy and sometimes with different angles and a lot of people drive here very fast because there are no traffic policemen.
We saw a accident here with a car that turn in a bad way and bumbed into a rock.
No restaurants or shops there ..so....
Be prepared ! and that obvioulsy means that you must have at least one bottle of water with you and if you're crazy enough to hike there in July / August then i suggest you to have more then a bottle.
Food is not allowed into the Canyon area so you better take care of your belly before arriving there.
Watch the signs and dont risk your self !
While hiking towards the upper part of the canyon the walking ways can be narrow and there are pretty clear signs of where you should or shouldn't walk.
Dont be a smart A** and jump above the ropes to get too close on the rocks above the pools, this rocks can be slippery and dangerouse.
Dont get caught by dehydration.
The ruins take some time to fully explore. Its very hot and dry. Bring a sun hat and plenty of bottled water. You wont find water on the site, but drinks can be obtained from the small cafeteria back down on the desert floor near the entrance to the site.
