  • It is an excursion that if these physical conditions to do it, but eye, because this inside a private property, so that the people you say Yes when you get to the gate is closed, do not follow unless you ask someone if you can spend. Usually is open. Constant ascent, and the road everywhere becomes VERY angostito, also is pure pebbles, so I recommend seriously not go if it isn't with appropriate footwear. Particularly, I use a few mini trekking boots, but some other grip andaria and thick-soled footwear, a shoe smooth NOT because if you not break you their necks to the and skidding to the bottom of the cliff, still going to put an end to feeling very sore feet the stones that you step on. Of course it isn't for people with difficulties to move, I do not recommend it for children, and not for people with vertigo or who are scared easily (not would to someone who declares that it frightens him, because if it is to frighten). Normally I in climbs such looking for a stick to support me, but here... not found a stick, a branch, or by chance... For this reason, it is not suitable for anything to go alone, as safe to find who go. Go early or that does not match the Sun strong, bring water, making all stops that is needed, this Iruya at 2700 and peak meters above sea level, and at the top of the lookout these close the 2900. It is respectable. It is absolutely beautiful, and regret not having a thermos of whatever it is, to stay more time, just watching. I didn't see condors, and that disappointed me very much. Then reason condor no flaps that uses thermal - as the Seagull, and there was no wind drafts. I could confirm this thought hours later while it having lunch in a gathered vista Hill: wind had risen and saw three condors. I console thinking that even if they are on the lookout had seen them from afar. I don't think it's necessary to comment more what I saw because many have already done so, I think that these tips they can be useful. Then be uploaded here, you let the ultimate viewpoint of La Cruz, and in the end I wasn't, lol, that is easy. That worthwhile people who go to Iruya only for a few hours, stays with the people, and the wonderful thing is not the people, but the environment, that you do not get tired.

  • The place is impressive. A town 4000 metres nestled in the mountains. Magical and spectacular. The hike to the viewpoint is curtain and very well rewarded by the incredible panoramic.
