This region, comprised by the provinces of Catamarca, Jujuy, Salta, Santiago del Estero and Tucumán, may be approached by any of its multiple features, as it is always amazing provided it is a harmonious combination of nature, history and live cultures, strongly rooted to the earth.
History is present at every step: dozens of villages and communities that keep alive their ancestral native rituals, either in their purest state or mingled with traditions brought by the Europeans. They are manifested in colorful and cheerful festivities as rich as the very same "Pachamama", the mother earth.

Join nature lovers on this 320 km journey to have the opportunity to cross the most captivating landscapes. We will leave behind the Lerma Valley’s tobacco fields and we will begin climbing the Quebrada de Escoipe, also known as ravine of the three colors, due to the reddish land and green hills that contrast with the blue sky. A bit further on, placed in a scenery of rugged beauty, we will find the impressive Cuesta del Obispo (Bishop’s Slope), an old aborigine circulation road. In a 21km trip we will overcome a 2400-meter slope to reach Piedra del Molino (the Millstone). In the lonely “Enchanted Valley”, as if time had stood still, you will feel trapped among reddish mountains and a variety of wild flowers in Spring, all of them guarded by the sovereign bird of the heights: the condor.
We will cross the National Park "Los Cardones" along the Tin Tin Stretch, an old Inca pathway, to get to Payogasta (from the Cacán “White town”), where the road weaves between colorful pepper plantations, and gently makes its way down to the sleepy village of Cachi. This town is framed by the snow capped mountain of 6384 m.a.s.l. which marks the border between the Puna desert and the fertile Calchaquí Valleys. Placed between the Cachi and Calchaquí rivers, this pleasant village, which was founded in 1673 as a Spanish outpost, retains in its narrow cobbled streets, the ancient church, with mud-brick walls and roof made of cactus. It is unique in preserving the belfry which reflects the purest Spanish colonial style in northern Argentina.
Many pre-Hispanic sites have enriched the village of Cachi with archeological pieces and burial urns in which the Indian culture lives on. The spectacle of colors provided by the alfalfa crop, the vegetables, and the drying-places for peppers make the trek worthwhile. Throughout the trip, you will be able to hear the silence, and give yourself to contemplation of a unique landscape, made up of the high mountain peaks which jealously save parts of our history.
