  • An ideal place to make a low difficulty trekking circuit and know the jungle system pedemontana or yunga without having to move far from the city of Salta. A tour can take to some viewpoints, the road starts along a stream. Highly recommended. Try not to go too late, with my family did and between cloudy day and the lush vegetation in the last stretch of return had low visibility.

  • If your plans are gasoleros is it is a good choice, the collective sale of the Center and leaves you on a few metres from the Gorge for less than $ 10 in 30 minutes, you can take your mate and something good to eat (there are a few tables) and have a good time without spending much. If accounts with budget is also a very good choice, since the Gorge there is a very nice bar (highly recommended pizza), there are stalls of handicrafts and local food. You can also hire a tour, although I do not recommend it. It has parking for those who go by car. I recommend visiting the Gorge after noon and spend all afternoon. P/d: take shelter which is usually colder than in the city

  • Ten minutes from the city of Salta is the town of San Lorenzo, elevated above the mountains, distinguished by being an area of country houses to spend weekends, it offers a special microclimate to relieve the heat of summer and winter snow. The landscape green, Grove and the tranquility of the people fall in love with the traveler. A street perpendicular to the path, with gentle curves and rising, leads US to the Quebrada de San Lorenzo, where you can enjoy the fresh and crystal clear waters of the river that descends from the Hill, walk along the picturesque shopping area that offers variety of regional products, take a few mates under the trees with the delicious doughnuts with honey made in place or delicious buns cooked in clay oven. Alternatively, you can upload, hiring guides that are found there, to the viewpoint of the hill from where you can appreciate the beautiful city of Salta. This is the ideal place for those who wish to be with nature, climbing the Hill by the river you can find variety of mosses, fungi and beautiful wild plants under the shade of the tall trees that border it; the birds also add to the beauty of the place. This ascent is easy because the river bed is composed of rocks of different size, just wet sneakers in doing so. Plants, trees, water, Sun, shade is colluding in a beautiful landscape and help recover the serenity and peace that we need so much in our lives.

  • Awesome views/nature. Has tables and grilling area (bring your own grill). Great for weekend BBQ. Has public bathrooms and two restaurants
  • Very beautiful place, but the trails aren't well-maintained and it's supposedly private property, so no one is sure if it's allowed to go there or not
  • Just beuatiful
  • Distant countryside 12 km from the capital of Salta. You can climb the Hill to contemplate from the Summit town is San Lorenzo. The rise is well marked is made in 1 hour or hour and a half. Not suitable for those who have no shoes or comfortable shoes. There are parts with narrow path

  • Beautiful place, very quiet, for a walk of peaceful hiking. You can also walk a few meters and sit down to appreciate the place. Very cute place. In the lower part there is a small crafts fair.
