Best photo taking location

Rough road to get there but happy I did it. Unbelievable rock formations that change with the angle you view them from. Easy to get great photos from a mid point location.

When you see these stupendous rock formations, you will know why the original peoples practiced fertility rituals in this area. No picture can capture the grandness of this spot-do not miss it!

This was the first stop on our tour to Batopilas, we were there at around 9.30am. It was still cold, but it was very quiet and peaceful and we really enjoying clambering amongst the enormous rocks. It is well worth a stop if you're passing, the rock formations are very impressive.

Rocks that have been shaped by the weather. Sorry but it was uninteresting and boring. I could find nothing to get exited about.

the ride out was through ejido land being farmed and grazed and locals were about going to school and gathering wood and tending their local homes. The rock formations were awesome. The people were very friendly and helpful...

I love exploring and valleys have their own unique villages and customs. This should be on your list.

We drove a 4 wheel drive on many roads in the back country, including all the way to the Valley of the Monks. The indians are an interesting group but not friendly at all. They don't like their pictures taken, are very private. But there is lots to see if you like nature. See my review of Batopilas for more... More
