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.

  • Accessed on asphalt in the path of Route 7, then it is a road with some cornices that must move carefully as there are sharp edges and not see who comes from the other side (the vans of tourists know the tour of memory and you become a speed somewhat high ad for the place that is) at the top is spectacular, the Argentine and Chilean side with the imposing Christ can be seen looking at everything... take shelter. Ideal for visiting the same day bridge of the Inca and Aconcagua.

  • Wonderful place. We visited in late December and still had snow melting. The vista up is incredible. And very tasty cold even in summer.

  • I went in summer, and still preserved something of snow at the top, and it was quite cold! Which took the opportunity to drink a hot chocolate provided on top. It is an impressive sight, you can appreciate the Aconcagua, and see the Chile-Argentina border. It is worth to take that extra moment to go and visit the area. It may add to the visit of the Puente del Inca, since it is very close!

  • If you like driving at 3000 m plus on winding well kept dirt roads, then this is the place to go.
  • Fantastic view on both sides. The road is opened on both sides too
  • 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
