Cristo Redentor De Los Andes, Las Cuevas
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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."

  • The monument itself, strikes by the size and even more so when they explain all the logistics to move so many tons there above. Also interesting is the reason by which placed the statue there, rather than anything as a symbol of peace between Argentina and Chile almost going to war. A believer may also may move it because it is Christ Statue. A fact to be highlighted, that place is exactly the natural border with Chile, so it depends on where you stand, you'll be in one country or another.

  • The access is very badly signposted. There is a steep climb. If you have clay recommend only 4 x 4. We tried to go up, but there were some landslides. With traction spent but a flat tire, was cold and getting dark we arrived very close. Where we went the view is beautiful.

  • After walking through the Chilean side in amazing Ruta 60, with its "Caracoles" where we took amazing photos to the border Argentina, arrived in Las Cuevas where would be the highlight of our tour, literally speaking, a visit to the monument Cristo Redentor de Los Andes, which is more than 4,000 meters above sea level, right on the border of the two countries. For our disenchantment the road to Christ shut because of the snow, to open only in February or March 2017. We're very sorry, they say it's stunning.
