Cristo Redentor De Los Andes, Las Cuevas

Drive along a notorious but highly scenic road to reach Cristo Redentor De Los Andes. Perched 3,832 m (12,572 ft) above sea level on the Andean border between Argentina and Chile, the impressive statue of Christ symbolizes the peaceful resolution to a border dispute between the two countries at the beginning of the 20th century. Look for the inscription etched around the monument's base, which promises that the two countries will maintain the peace they have worked towards, lest the mountains "crumble into dust." A visit to Cristo Redentor De Los Andes represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Las Cuevas day trip website to plot your vacation.

    The road to the caves is beautiful. A sunny day with the clear sky of blue almost turquoise unforgettable. Color of the mountains, streams and in the distance the Colossus always snow-covered Aconcagua. A spectacle that is impossible to forget. One is the Majesty of andes on the retina.

    While we were in September, the day before had snowed both who could not ascend to Christ the Redeemer. However the road to Las Cuevas is a beautiful ride, and I did it 5 times and I cannot follow recorriendolo. Although from Mendoza capital is only 200 km of ida, are super bearable because the RN7 has many areas of transfer and the landscapes are beautiful, from tunnels, the river Mendoza that always goes to the side of the road, different shapes and colors of the mountains everything is very picturesque. It is a ride that can not be done if you travel to Mendoza.

    Amazing view from up here. Going up on the Argentinian side is easier. The road on the Chilean side is steep and with many, many serpentines. It can be pretty windy and cold up here even in summer. Make sure to bring a pullover and a jacket. Driving up with regular car is possible. Use low gears and do not drive faster than 20 km/h. I would not recommend driving up here when it is raining or about to rain.

    Years back I pushed up my bicycle the unrideable road. The road is unpaved full of big stones. I saw even SUV cars giving up. Beside the Yungas road this is one of my highest roads in my life. As there is now a tunnel towards Argentina it looks no one takes care on this road anymore. This road is in "no man's land" between borders. As more height I have been gaining as more the feelings grow. Grey sky, close to rain, temperature dropped. This place is for enthusiasts only... But a place you will not forget.

    Incredible view and statue with great history as well. Bring a jacket as it is cold up there even in the summer months

    13000 feet in the Andes, at the border of Argentina and Chile. Amazing views.

    Didn't get to see the statue itself, due to road conditions from the Chilean side. Had to leave the car at the base and walk up and didn't reach the statue. Amazing place and amazing vistas. Perilous driving at the best of times, but the road from Chile is falling into serious disrepair, so you are probably best going from the Argentina side.
