A gorgeous drive that will have you gasping. Make sure to have a lot of space on your memory card or just a really good memory. Well worth the time.

Fascinating landscape, unusual even for the Andes. Ruta 40, which is dirt track here, winds tortuously through a landscape of curious jagged rock-forms.

Apparently, they shot several scenes of the Star Wars planet Tatooine here. Whether that's true or not, this quebrada is a much-see in this region. It is a surreal landscape which can be best explored by rental car. We did a round-trip from Salta via...More
