Mirador de la Cruz, Iruya

(4.7/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
A climb to the top of Mirador de la Cruz rewards you with expansive views and photo opportunities of the city of Iruya and the surrounding mountain rage. Take some shots of the winding city streets below. Take the time to view the strait of Magellan, as well as Tierra del Fuego, in the distance. Be sure to bring a light jacket--winds at the top can lower the temperature noticeably.

  • The mirador is beautiful, austere as all the people and with a view panoramic excellent. The ascent is made long, more for those who are not accustomed to the heights and altitude sickness, but everything passes and is compensated soon as you reach the top. Stop in Iruya.

  • Beautiful view of the Valley. A walk by a trail made to get to the lookout with the view classic of all the "Center" of Iruya. Visit obliged.

  • I stay at Tilcara and the morning take the bus that goes to Iruya. It takes 4 hours, but the scenery is incredible... In the tourism office you get a flat and you guide to visit the viewpoint. Also if possible, cross in front by the bridge and see the village from another perspective. Be aware of the return by the schedule of the collective. If I go on another occasion I would like to stay at least 2 nights. I think that should have much to walk...
