  • We left Cachi well early to take the more than 150 kms of gravel of the R40 to Cafayate. Mostly the R40 is gravel, typical route in the area where you have to explore it with care. Arriving at Angastaco the following 50 kms are in very poor condition, the average of March not step of 20 km/h, but nature compensated us all this with its beauty. The Quebrada de las Flechas from the Canyon just leaving from Angastaco delights us with its forms, its silences, corners and colors. In simply beautiful this little-explored corner. A point highly recommendable to enjoy, that if, do not expect it to do in minutes, takes almost all day Cachi from Cafayate or vice versa. Enjoy it, don't run.
