Overview

The most outstanding landscapes of the Andes mountain range that you cannot miss on your first visit to Mendoza. 

With the imposing view of the Potrerillos Dam, which surprises us after touring the recently opened Cacheuta Tunnel, we begin this journey along the international route No. 7.

The next point of the route will be Uspallata; former pre-Hispanic settlement of aboriginal Huarpes and current village of this mountain route. From this point, the southernmost of the Inca Empire, we go to the villages of Picheuta, Polvaredas, Punta de Vacas and the former Penitentes ski resort.

Later, we will meet on the banks of our route, with Puente del Inca, a rock formation that represents a natural bridge surrounded by thermal springs, over Las Cuevas river. A few kilometers away, located at 2750 m.a.s.l, is the viewpoint of the Colossus of America, the Aconcagua Hill, which with its 6962 m.a.s.l, receives visitors from all over the world with the desire to reach its summit.

Finally we will arrive at Las Cuevas villa, located at 3200 m.a.s.l to make our lunch stop and tour one of the authentic villages of our country.

Between Las Cuevas and the international tunnel to Chile, there is the route that allows you to ascend to the Cristo Redentor Monument only during the summer season. This icon is located at 4200 m.a.s.l and symbolizes the union between Argentines and Chileans.

Andes day trip

Posted on November 20, 2020 on TripAdvisor by Nick E | We had a great day. Amazing sights. Our guide was lovely. Very informative- probably said more in Spanish than English but still loads of geological info and history for us and answered any questions. Driver was very careful and the bus comfortable. Great value day out

Wonderful tour in the Andes

Posted on October 24, 2019 on TripAdvisor by Fossi007 | The tour was great and we enjoyed it very much. The car was brand new and very clean and comfortable, Sergio, the driver was a very kind person, helping to take pictures and a good driver. Andrea, the guide, was awesome, she gave a lot of background information and was very nice talking to.
