  • You will be at the heart of a canvas of a great artist! Attention however to the altitude sickness that could give you a good headache and plan the shown in 4 x 4 because it is a road of type track.

  • This must be the most colourful rock formation of the entire mountain range. The calcareous rock layers are in position of 45 degrees and if superpôem in an impressive array. Are 14 colors, but mosaic has more than 30 variations. The tickets cost only 40 pesos per vehicle and 20 pesos per bike and the revenue it gets for indigenous communities. Worth face the 25 km of winding road of rípio with sharp stones in various places. It is a problem that affects all vehicles and we were one of the visitors, they had to change the tires of the car. The height of the mirador reaches 4,300 meters above the sea and causes the malaise of heights in some people. Moreover, even in the summer and with the sunny day, the constant wind lowers the temperature and you should be well wrapped up if you want to get out of the vehicle to better appreciate the view.

  • To do in the morning or noon, lasts about 2 hours, 3 hours. They offer tours in Van where you appreciate the way, are vicunas on the way. When you reach the viewpoint one can descend a few meters and there you can really appreciate the community of the Hornocal that is beautiful, and if you are lucky some condor who walk out there. The rise of return to the viewpoint is a bit hard but short. Sale $200 per person, it is worth.
