Full description
Start your morning in Salta and get ready for a scenic drive through the Argentinian landscape. Only a few kilometers after starting the drive be stunned as you approach Quebrada de Escopies, a surprising spot full of green vegetation and amazing red hills on the side. Quebrada de Escopies connects with Cuesta del Obispo which reaches over 11,154-feet above sea level on a zigzagging mountain road with incredible panoramic views.

From there, you will see different formations and maybe some condors flying in their natural habitat. After leaving Cuesta del Obispo the drive takes you into ​​Los Cardones National Park. The park is a valley framed by colorful formations and incredibly tall mountains with peaks that rise above 19,700-feet.

In the middle of the impressive terrain, take a break in a cacti forest. Here you’ll be able to walk around, take pictures, and observe the mountains of the Andes. If you’re lucky you might be able to spot some guanacos grazing in the high meadows.

After your drive you will arrive in Cachi, a charming, little colonial town whose architecture invites you for a walk and coffee in the square to enjoy. After lunch, you will begin your journey back to Salta. Fortunately, the road is a path that is worth repeating. You’ll be surprised by how much you missed on the way to Cachi!
