Northern Route 40
The Northern Ruta 40 (Route 40) covers a vast array of landscapes, from the dry high altitude deserts and mountains of the Andes near the Bolivian border to the lush vineyards of Mendoza, every corner of this journey presents a jaw dropping, beautiful vista. It is also home to some of the oldest cultures in Argentina and many pre-Columbian ruins such as Quilmes and the Pucara di Tilcara can be explored. The main attraction, however, is without a doubt the countryside itself. The National Parks of Talampaya and Ischigualasto offer some of the world’s most unusual geological and palaeontological treasures and the multi coloured hillsides around Pumamarca have got to be seen to be believed.
