Cachi Day Trip Itinerary
After collecting you from your hotel early in the morning, we will head south towards the towns of Cerrillos, La Merced and El Carril, before taking Route 33 in the direction of the Quebrada de Escoipe. This magnificent gorge, known for its fern-covered landscapes, is a magnificent sight to behold.
We will continue along the hair-raising road to Cuesta del Obispo, which winds its way through the gorges and the majestic Valle Encantado (Enchanted Valley), before reaching Piedra de Molino, located at almost 11,000 feet (3348 m) above sea level. At these high altitudes, once part of the ancient Inca trails, you have the chance of catching the sight of condors hovering over the wind-swept rocks. Our journey continues across the arid semidesert terrain of Los Cardones National Park, where we'll have the opportunity to discover the area's native flora and fauna.
Next, we'll make our way to Cachi. As we approach the city, you will be able to make out the peaks of Nevado de Cachi, which at more than 18000 feet above sea level, is the highest mountain in the Calchaquí Valleys. On arrival, you will hear all about the colonial history of Cachi, as you stroll through its streets and historic center. When we have finished the tour, you will have your own free time to take lunch in the area and try the local gastronomy.
At the end of the day, we'll return to Salta where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.
