Full description
Get to know the most beautiful landscapes of the Calchaquí Valleys and the magical town of Cachi on a full-day bus excursion from Salta. After departing from central Salta, head through the Lerma Valley. Then, enter the Quebrada de los Laureles, where you can admire the landscape of Yungas forest. On the Cuesta del Obispo hill, admire the panorama of the entire Encantado Valley and enjoy spectacular views of the windy road you have just traveled up. Head to Piedra del Molino where you will reach the highest point of 3,384 m above sea level.

Continue through the Straight of Tin-Tin and Payogasta until you reach Cachi, a small town known for its adobe houses and white colonial buildings. When you arrive, visit the Museo Arqueológico de Cachi Pío Pablo Díaz, a museum of locally excavated artifacts, some dating back 10,000 years. Just round the corner, step inside the Iglesia San José - a beautiful Spanish colonial church. Take a relaxing stroll through the pretty streets admiring the views and architecture. Finally, return to Salta along the same road.
