  • Visit the mine it Mexican is an adventure from the start. All the way, at times impassable is unique, changing landscapes, colors, height, this mine to 4600msnm. Found in the deposits of ochre, halfway to a marriage that is in charge of exploiting them in the middle of nowhere, literally. More forward, them ruins of a mine to which today day is difficult get and that was expplotada to end of the century XIX and principles of the XX and in which built the cableway more long of the world simply you leaves without words. A place unique to visit if you can!

  • Road almost impassable, climate changing to moments, pronunciation altimetry, beautiful landscapes, completion of the cableway more long of the world in station Upulungos declared MHN, really worth it penalty visit by being simply a fun adventure, with precautions and vehicle always 4 by 4 low. Unforgettable photos and to take care of the very frequent sickness. Places you will visit: at Playa bonita to seekers of gold (pirquineros), Finca Los Corrales, the manger, petroglyphs, Grand Canyon of the ochre, put the watercress, Cuevas de Noroña, Perez Cueva 3750 msm, the Mexican mine and tunnels, frozen waterfall, 8 stations and 9 of the cableway. The barrier of the cutting of the dignity which opposes all a people and not give social license for exploitation of mining open pit is what I liked the most. What I liked the least is that they oppose to collect tolls and therefore do not want to keep or roads or better services for the visit to this excellent national historic monument, which suffers from lack of maintenance and every day is rust more and more, a real shame the decision of the people of Famatina.

  • Complication road average to reach the 9 nuemro of the mine mouth (is the last) the only problem more serious is bancar height. The tunnel was almost covered completely by snow and ice, but its truly spectacular interior. Pharaonic work of more than 100 years where he was the cable car longest in the world (35 km)
