TIN TIN line. A perfect straight line, right after this last curve, of 12 km at 3000 meter altitude | 120713-5710-jikatu

Most probably made originally by the Incas. Some even claim extraterrestrial origin.

 

"The almost perfectly straight segment of road is not a product of modern highway engineering, as it existed before European settlers arrived in this section of Argentina. It is believed that the Inca Empire (1480-1535) must have created the road using a series of blazing campfires to create the alignment, but nothing is certain."

Recta de TIN TIN. Una recta perfecta de 12 km de posible origen Inca.

La majestuosidad del parque se comienza a apreciar desde la ruta 33 que lo atraviesa.
