This is a far less visited place than the nearby quebrada de las conchas. Nevertheless this is breathtaking and one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. From Angastaco to San Carlos the whole trip is amazing. Colors, dagger shaped mountains and cliffs and a turquoise sky hanging over the mountains. Be careful if you go there in summer.... More

- My advise is to rent a car and make one of the best roadtrips you will ever have. The whole region surrounding Salta is so great, so different, ... We rode : Salta-Cafayate-Molinos-Cachi-Salta-Humahuaca-Salinas Grandes-Purmamarca-Salta. Take 4 days for this if you want to do it without stress and with enough time to enjoy. - Quebrada de las Conchas (Salta-Cafayate)... More

Route 49 is an unsealed gravel road that's 112km long. It is winding and narrow in places but also spectacular. We drove it in a little Chevrolet which was no problem. Towns are few and far between but ones like Milinos are worth a 1km detour. The Valle Calchaqui enroute is beautiful in its dusty way and the rock formations... More

This quebrada is truly spectacular and the interesting part last for many kilometers. As road 40 is going just through it, there is nothing to do to enjoy it... just drive and stop whenever you want to take a picture! Very nice.

A spectacular place, incredible journey. Wonderful rock formations on the way 70Km between Cafayate and Angatasco. It can be done with a rental car. If you have good physical fitness may be a bike ride. Another way to be in this place is for tours departing from Salta and Cafayate.

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 Cafayate and Cachi back to Salta, which allows you to see the Quebrada de las... More

If you go to the Northwest area of Argentina, do not miss the Calchaquies Valley. I recommend renting a car to drive from the city of Cafayate northwards to the city of Salta through the gorgeous, colorful villages of Animaná, San Carlos, Angastaco, Molinos, Seclantás and Cachi. From Cafayate (a city famous for its vineyards, namely producing the Torrontes variety)... More
