"ROUTE FROM CACHI TO SALTA" Argentina Off The Beaten Path Tip by swesn

Argentina Off The Beaten Path: 112 reviews and 108 photos

Another amazing route!!

The road from Cachi to Salta climbs continuous to Cuesta del Obispo, passing a straight stretch of road La Recta del Tin-Tin which offers beautiful views of the Los Cardones National Park, an area with huge candelabra cacti scattered all over the desert.

At the summit of Piedra de Molino (3300+m), one finds oneself above the clouds and suddenly looking down at a ribbony road down Quebrada de Escoipe. A journey with incredible views.
