4.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web
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 few kilometers from Salta, way to Cachi, should pass through this path of mountains, curves and ascents where you're finding very nice scenery at all times. At times, you can enter a cloud which reduces visibility to you and the temperature changes. For the lovers of mountain roads.

  • Road winding and slow but that is worth the penalty by the beautiful view of the valleys and hills. Way to cachi

  • One day it reaches to travel the road that joins with Cachi-Salta by the slope of the Bishop roundtrip, leaving Salta early (7 pm) and returning to this city at 7 pm. The road is the slope. Try again before 5 pm (in summer), because clouds covered the slope and you may not see anything at least up to 20 pm. Why paste Cahi return to Salta at 15 pm. (In summer). In other words, after eating. Also may transit interumpan rains for a few hours. That is why it is convenient to find out before as it is the way. Be prepared for the surprise, because it is beautiful.

  • A road very long, with many curves and contracurvas, to do it with much caution, especially in time of rains, the view very good.
