The scenery is quite nice, and it is worth the trip but... unpaved road would be a gross overstatement, you will definitely need a 4x4 jeep not an SUV, very narrow, steep, slippery can get you in trouble before you realize.

This is an outstanding natural reserve featuring those peculiar geological formations "Calanchi" and "Biancane", badlands to be precise, which stem from deposition and erosion phenomena. You can freely walk throughout the reserve and explore it. This lunar landscape will remain with you forever.
