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. A visit to Cuesta del Obispo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Salta day trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • The slope of the Bishop is a unique place, showing the Majesty of creation. It is a winding road and with enough height, so it is recommended to not load too much the stomach to have fun. You can be in contact with nature and take beautiful photos. It is certainly a good place!

  • We had the pleasure of traveling between Salta and Cachi, a beautiful slightly cloudy day and enjoy the slope of the Bishop, her curves, rises at the same time, views everywhere. It is a journey to take it calmly and enjoy, beware the height that rises up to 4000 metres in the stone mill.

  • 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.
