Puente del Inca, Las Cuevas
(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
See the awe-inspiring geological formation at Puente del Inca, a naturally formed bridge that spans the Vacas river. Scientists remain unsure as to how the bridge formed, but they believe it was a combination of ice forming over the river and landslides from above. Walk around the site and enjoy the view, as well as the ancient hotel built into the wall. Alongside the bridge sits a market where you can buy local handmade goods and minerals found in the area. Put Puente del Inca into our Las Cuevas itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It is without a doubt the real reason why one makes this excursion, see the majestic puente del inca. This landscape is something priceless and appreciate the evolution of the time in its structure impacts. He is transported again to the times where it was inhabited by them. Only sad thing is that you got that watch it from afar, since they won't let you approach for reasons of preservation.

  • Very pretty place to learn. It is a bridge which armed of course, surrounded by seaweed that give the characteristic greenish yellowish!

  • Argentina-Chile near the border. Worth a quick stop. There are craft stalls. It is a natural bridge formed by mineral deposition. Below the bridge there is a spa resort already disabled and the river rushing below. A very interesting view.

  • Stop forced when it passes the road of high mountain. I was on several occasions, I saw it in summer and snowy winter. It is always nice to be there awhile.
