... hit the road.
Up up and away we drove straight up hill and did a 2000 meter climb in 30 kilometers.... up to 4950 meters. Coca leaves in our mouth all day. 1 pass, 2 passes, 3 passes up and down through the most magnifiquant scenery.

After 170 km of no-mans-land we reached the Argentine border. Haaaa, that was another 2 hours back and forth. Once the officers were convinced that our cars were real, having looked up ...

On day 2 of the road trip we followed the advice of the hostel and took a dirt track out of the small town and up the mountainside to visit the devilīs throat.

Once you have done that, there is not much more to do in the town. So I bought a new hat from the region, blue like the sky that is cloudfree all the time. Then I climbed the other mountain in front of the main one to have a different view and tried to go to the second spot nearby which is the salinas grandes. As the price of the taxi is ...

Traveling Notes

Getting from Cafayate to Purmamarca in one day is possible, but a little tricky. When we did the trip, we caught a 3:00 PM bus from Salta to Jujuy that arrived at 5:00. The last bus of the day from Jujuy to Purmamarca left at 5:00 as well, making for a very, very tight connection.

Purmamarca is a very small town, but has a surprising number of ...
