(4.7/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Surround yourself with untouched nature and go for a hike among the red cliffs of Sierra de las Quijadas. Somewhat hidden within Sierra de las Quijadas National Park, this mountain range is renowned for its scenic rock formations and thriving wildlife. Species inhabiting the range include eagles, condors, bobcats, foxes, maras, and many more. The range was once the home of the Huarpe people and features several archeological sites. There are a number of hiking trails throughout the range; whichever you choose, be sure to bring sufficient supplies, such as water and snacks. Often lacking natural shade, all hiking trails in the park are closed if the outside temperature rises above 37 °C (98 °F).

  • It exceeded any expectation that it had. The landscapes are stunning and circuits are well marked and they are not complicated. There are special rates for university students and residents of San Luis.

  • Million years, red, jagged mountains, sparse vegetation, the indigenous Huarpe people leave marks of their lifestyle, culture and work is a place of beauty singular.r is a difficult trip for most people, I would say that has its risks, but you can appreciate its grandeur without walking
