Tuneles de Taninga, Province of Cordoba
(4.6/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
An engineering feat provides access to the city, known as Tuneles de Taninga. The five tunnels were built in the 1930s in an effort to connect the city to the rest of Cordoba province. The dirt road, National Route 20, that connects the tunnels is flanked by low desert brush and surrounded by the expansive landscape of the rising hillsides. Journey to the top through each of the five tunnels by car or by bus; the view at the top will not disappoint. On the way, watch for a deserted quartz mine and a small village with a handful of local restaurants.

  • Every 100 meters you want to stop to admire the scenery, very pretty crossing although reach has its time since go tranqui, went early and return to eat free at a Parador goat ($180 x person, more drinks), the route from the foot and back approx. 2 hours tranqui.

  • Tank full and later, up to taninga and then take the left gravel, views the mas, the valleys of la rioja they seem a sea seen from the height, tunnels a monument to the pioneers of the 1930 that made them to peak and shovel, I recommend the turn by chincani doloress Villa, that is already going down the mountain and take the dirt road but very good condition You can manage not to repeat the hard road of the sierras and the happy bones lol

  • load your auto with naphtha and patience (both tanks full) and start from Tanti, by the giant until Taninga... is missed and from there to pass them tunnels continues the same character. It is for the entire day, traveling slowly (not so easy road, both in its design and its floor) but hermosisisimo if you like mountain, you will find several shocking. An advice, don't look for signs, there, but passes the tunnels and low mountain, when you're on foot, desanda the way and returning to Taninga can continue along pavement towards Villa Dolores or Cruz del Eje.
