Quebrada del Rio de las Conchas, Cafayate

4.9
A large nature reserve, Quebrada del Rio de las Conchas is home to unusual geological formations, mountain ranges, and a colorful landscape. Tectonic movement in the last two million years influenced the way the land appears today, creating unique shapes and red rock formations. Enter through the gorge and drive through the reserve to reach fascinating natural sites like the whimsically named Devil's Throat. Music performances are sometimes held in these natural amphitheatres, and if you're lucky, you just might catch a spectacular show.

  • This viewpoint is located on the side of route 68, KM 46. No need to upload, the landscape that provided is beautiful. Up, with the help of a PIN made of trunk, follows the postcard. It is not a long stretch, but there are that go carefully so you don't slip. There are some crafts vendors.
