This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Cacheuta, Cacheuta, Mendoza, Province of Mendoza, Cuyo

Cacheuta: it is located on the border between the departments of Luján de Cuyo and Las Heras (west of the province), a place that captivates with its hot springs, the Old Station, and a picturesque hanging bridge over the river. Another must-see in the area!

Stop At: Potrerillos Dam, Cacheuta, Mendoza Argentina

Located at 60 km. from the city of Mendoza, this great dam regulates the flows of the Mendoza River. And with its almost 1500 mts. of surface, it stands out among the mountains with a magical landscape. For us, getting to know Mendoza includes visiting this place.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Uspallata, Uspallata, Province of Mendoza, Cuyo

Uspallata: the city that was the protagonist of our history. Before the crossing of the Andes, two armies met there to cross the mountain range towards Chile, and free it from royalism. They did it through the Uspallata Pass, 204 years ago!
We will enjoy a breakfast in "Los Condores" Hotel.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Parque Provincial Aconcagua, Mendoza Argentina

through one of the most popular ravines in Mendoza, the Horcones ravine, we enter the Aconcagua Provincial Park. There, at 2950 meters above sea level, we find the Horcones Lagoon, a large water mirror formed by the melting of the glaciers. In the background, we can see the view of a vertical wall of more than 3,000 meters: the Mount Aconcagua (one of the highest outside the Himalayas). This is undoubtedly our favorite place of the tour.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
