Quebrada del Rio de las Conchas, Cafayate
(4.9/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A must do in Cafayate. You'll find the best views here. Make sure the tourist guide tells you about the story which is great too. 
  • From Cafayate, is in a visit to these places only a few minutes, which makes that one can stop and walk into these reddish stone alleys to find views that are not seen from route 68.
