Cuesta del Obispo, Salta

4.9
#2 of 27 in Parks in Province of Salta
Hold on to the edge of your seat as your car winds its way up a precarious mountain road at Cuesta del Obispo. Not for the faint of heart, the scenic but intimidating road offers little in the way of safety measures and can cause motion sickness. You won't regret the journey, though, when you burst through the clouds and arrive at the cactus-filled plains at the road's end, perched atop a plateau 3,348 m (10984 ft) above sea level. Drive a rented car up the road or take a guided tour, which may be the best way to relax and enjoy the view.

    1 hour from Salta it already begins the ascent along this majestic way. The road is in good condition, and worth the walk. In 3 1/2 hours you are in Cachi.

    Beautiful Drive up the pass ... Dirt road all the way up to the top, but well maintained and the views are amazing.

    We went on a bike ... Wonderful ride, despite the rocky terrain and in recovery. A lot of rain. Many detours ... In particular, my bike is for asphalt, however in "turn". Beautiful! It is worth visiting.

Where to stay in Salta

Salta's status as the tourist hub of northwestern Argentina means that a wide array of accommodations has sprung up throughout the city. The majority are concentrated around the city's grid-like center, surrounding Plaza 9 de Julio. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, go southeast and explore the area around Parque San Martin. You can opt for anything from a healthy range of budget accommodations, including hostels and small guesthouses, all the way to luxury hotels.
