Cajón de los Arenales trekking

On the west of Uco Valley and following clear streams, the way goes into the Cordillera de los Andes. The ascent is between enormous rocky gorges who are mute witnesses of indians, jesuits, armies and "arrieros" who crossed these high passes to Chile for centuries.
This area offers different alternative paths, some reaching up to 4450 masl. What they all share is the amazing visual impact while going up in any direction. This day guarantees a lifetime memory.
