Cristo Redentor De Los Andes, Las Cuevas
(4.7/5 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."

  • 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.

  • I was at the beginning of September/2016, and the road was completely blocked for access to the Christ of the andes. Still, the scenery on the road was spectacular.

  • Cross of Christ the Redeemer. A 1 km tunnel as impressive as it sounds to uniting the two countries through the mountain range. On one side a landscape with green mountains, across the same mountains with tunnels and colourful mountains... In snowy winter, circular with caution and if necessary strings. The kids in the snails could merearse also take preventive measures...
