Mirador del Sol, Merlo

(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Follow a rustic yet paved mountain path up to Mirador del Sol and you will be awarded with panoramic vistas of the city, neighboring towns, the valley, and the mountains. Walk around, pick a picnic spot, or have a drink at a cafe sitting 1,470 m (4,823 ft) above sea level. Several stops along the way offer opportunities to zipline, horseback ride, and paraglide. If you continue up the road, you will come to the edge of the Sierra Mountains, where the paved path turns into a hiking track.

  • The road to the lookout is very cute, gets many meters in a few kilometres, we reach the so-called cutting edge; boundary of the province of San Luis with Cordoba, thence appreciates all Merlo, several zorritos can be observed in the way.

  • A path winding and with beautiful views is something breezy but very nice worth climbing up there. I recommend the sunset, is an exciting show see how goes down the Sun and bathes the city and the plain at the foot of the Hill

  • The road to the ridge is beautiful. You're going up along roads curve and curve and always up. There are times that is a little bit of fear because it is long cliff, but it is worth. Unfortunately when we were was cloudy so it could not see the city of Merlo. It will need to be!

  • Excellent view and really is easy vehicular access since it is paved road. Then these 8km and 1000 meters more than another beautiful great viewpoint; but that will be for another review...

  • Road to the edge of the Hill have this viewpoint where we get a view of all Merlo and surroundings. A spectacular view, mainly in the evening. See the city by night from there above must be spectacular but not recommend to descend at night since the signage is not the best. There are crafts and places to stop to look at the landscape.
