    It's a flawless path, which surprises from the beginning with its hills of different colors! Each turn you find with different landscapes with 14 colors in the mountains that surround you. On the other hand, despite being desolate, since there is no traffic, there are security and SOS along all the way. Impossible to be missed!

    impressive scenic views on the way to the San Francisco pass, one remains amazed by the vastness between peaks exceeding six thousand meters of height

    No to be missed. I recommend loading fuel in Tinogasta and Fiambalá not, much criticism with the same quality. If there is doubt, bring a few litres safely, anyway to return is much less consumed. Must-see snow-capped volcanoes. The low temperature and the air gets «fine», care if it blows the zonda.
