  • Incredible landscape one drawn by wind and by the movements of the underlying geological plate! Millions of years petrified sandstone sediments surged under tectonic thrusts, until an angle of over 60 degrees. The wind did the rest, erodendone borders and affilandoli, to form endless sequences of arrows, hence the name of this magnificent quebrada. Climb to belvedere Ventrisquero, up at the top, to enjoy the scenery. We have been there twice already, but the emotion is always great.

  • The peculiar landscape gave us! Despite the cold, the sun lit up the afternoon and the blue sky was a complement to this true monument of nature. Not even all inhaled dust reduced the unique beauty of this desert region and so amazing. The nature of this region Argentina is a scandal.
