Description

Head out from Mendoza's hustle and bustle and spend a day in the mountains. Over the course of this guided full-day tour, see the pre-Andes, interesting small villages, stunning rivers, sprawling mountain peaks, and natural hot springs.

Make your way to the pre-Andes mountains and ascend to an altitude of 9,840 feet (3,000 m). Admire the spectacular scenery of the picturesque Upsallata Valley, where you hike along the Pan-American Highway. The trail passes through small mountain villages like Picheuta, Polvaredas, and Punta de Vacas, continuing to the famous ski center of Los Penitentes.

Next, venture to Puente del Inca (Inca's Bridge), approximately 8,924 feet (2,720 m) above sea level. At Las Cuevas River, see how thermal water flows under a natural bridge before heading to a viewpoint near the Chilean border. Marvel at the impressive panorama dominated by Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Soutehrn Hemisphere.

Depending on the weather, you might even visit the Christ the Redeemer monument, which stands 13,779 feet (4,200 m) tall, built as a symbol of the Argentine-Chilean fraternity.

We signed up for a tour in English, but our guide only knew a few words in English. The sight were beautiful, but it would have been nice to have some explanation as to what we were seeing. We were also told that we would be picked up at our hotel at 7:00 but did not show up until after 8:00, please don’t advertise an an English tour when it is not.

Driver was not helpful or friendly. It seems like they brought us to the worse places and the food was horrible
