  • The Cuesta de Lipan must travel to get to Salinas Grandes from Purmamarca. Both the road and the views are amazing. The work of the man generates admiration to do this way. You get great photos with the path winding among the mountains.

  • This has to be the best drive I've ever taken, the views are undescribable as you wind your way up through a succession of hairpin bends. Loads of places to take photos as you go.  more »
  • It's a slope that runs the national 52 route. It is in good condition. It has a maximum height of 4170 meters and there is a boundary stone that corroborates it. There are plenty of curves and curves. The views are amazing.
